Emem Washington, is a multi-passionate creative entrepreneur who is utilizing her experience as an attorney, speaker, singer/songwriter, and coach to serve emerging thought-leaders and world-changers.
She has a passion for teaching, which has put her in front of diverse audiences, from K-12 students to law students; attorneys and corporate professionals to church congregations, as well as online audiences worldwide. She enjoys speaking on issues concerning women, youth and young adults and shares her own experience of overcoming adversities to encourage and empower her “tribe” to live out fully alive and purpose-filled lives. She has a soft spot for those who are often overlooked or underestimated, including children from disadvantaged backgrounds and single mothers.
With a B.S in Biology, a Juris Doctorate in Law and an LL.M in Intellectual Property and Information Law, Emem never imagined that she would become an entrepreneur. She preferred the campus life over the corporate life and never thought there was a place for her in entrepreneurialism. She still remains a “serial academic” and loves teaching, and learning, on a wide variety of topics.
Emem combines her experiences, legal training and her voice (singing, writing and speaking) to inspire and support other creatives and visionaries to reach their fullest potential. Her advice and counsel have been sought after for many years. Utilizing her strengths in advocacy and research as well as her persistently optimistic mindset, Emem is on a mission to show others how to thrive wherever they are and to realize that they are not too old (or too young) to be successful.
Her recent projects include her debut album, “Rebirth” (available on iTunes and other music outlets), which is a contemporary Christian/inspirational album with a focus on planting seeds of hope. One popular song on the album is titled “Flip The Page” which draws on Emem’s own story to remind listeners that no matter what their situation looks like, their story is not over.
When she is not teaching, researching or leading worship, Emem enjoys spending time with her family, reading and listening to podcasts and music. Emem is happily married to Cedrick Washington and is the proud mother of 2 boys.
What is your superpower? What are you good at that you like to help others overcome?
I would say that one of my super powers is the ability to find some good in almost any situation. That’s not to say that I trivialize someone’s pain, though.
