Meet Aysia Woods, The Professional People Gatherer. Her expertise is connecting people and creating moments through unforgettable events.
Aysia inspires our fire because she took a leap a faith and decided to create the career she wanted instead of caving into the pressures of society. You can now find her gathering people through the Art of Journey meet ups or by cultivating beautiful experiences through event planning.
We caught up with her to pick her brain a bit!
What inspires your fire?
I don’t think I can pinpoint one inspiration source because I’m inspired from a combination of sources – family, friends, books, movies, nature, my travels, fashion. I tend to think deeply about everything and am a pretty sensitive person, so it’s a lot of things.
What piece of advice would you tell your 16 year old self?
I would tell my 16 yr old self to keep being bold and headstrong! I was a pretty outgoing and passionate teenager. I was on the debate team and had a pretty unique sense of style, and I think that helped me be confident.
What’s one healthy habit that keeps you going?
One healthy habit that keeps me going is cooking nourishing food! After a stressful few days, I like to relax by putting music on and cooking with a glass of wine.
Aysia is based in DC. If you’re ready to take your event to the next level or just feel like getting inspired check out her website AsyiaWoods.com.
