We had the good fortune of connecting with Keiera Bradley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Keiera, what do you want your legacy to be?
My legacy will be rooted in truth and passion. I want to leave behind an impression of faith in self and true care for ones self. I want to influence communities to open their minds and relearn what it means to love for ourselves through our every day practices. When people think of Keiera I want them to think of someone who motivated, healed, and loved them through their process of reversing disease and changing harmful cycles in their family. I want to continue to be the first introduction that many people have to healthy living and natural foods. I am so grateful for those who came before me and as I learn more everyday about health I get more excited about teaching others. My legacy will live through my business, my advocacy for access in low income communities, and my future children who will embody everything I stand for.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am most proud of being able to be the first introduction many people have to healthy eating and herbal health. I am inspired by people’s will to want to change given the right information. It has not been easy and continues to be a fight as a navigate being a first generation business owner with no financial guidance/support or blueprint to follow. It is a struggle to understand that the pleasures we’ve enjoyed in ignorance or the poisons that continue to kill us and keep us low vibrational beings. I have gained much patience by being a teacher and letting the community come to certain truths on their own.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would love to show them Leimert Park – one of my favorite areas in the city. I would suggest they go to Little Ethopia as well. I would take them to Hot N Cool Cafe for some good vegan eats. I would take them to Runyon Canyon for a hike or the Santa Monica stairs. Long beach as great scenery, vegan food, and bike riding.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to Dr. Sebi and Dr. Llaila O Afrika. These two African men are the reason I became interested in my health as an melanated woman and continue to pass on the gems they taught us.
