Nicole Collins has participated in or created advocacy work since 2012. The Blooming Phoenix was created in 2019 to promote healing in Black women who have suffered from postpartum depression. This nonprofit is now the home to Nicole's other advocacy works, such as the LOVE Yours Public Speaking Workshop. This organization promotes public welfare by providing Black women and girls access to healing through arts and cultural education and enrichment.
LOVEYours is a workshop designed to enhance self-confidence and self-acceptance in young girls through the art of public presentation. Workshops have been held in Los Angeles, CA, and Alexandria and New Orleans, LA.
The 2024 workshop focuses on breaking Menstrual Taboos and will be held across 4 Saturdays March 2, 9, 16, & 23 at the André Cailloux Center on the historic Bayou Road.
Registration is NOW OPEN for girls aged 11-17.
