Nzingah Oniwosan is a Haitian-American inspirational speaker and holistic health consultant. As an award-winning visual artist, classically trained pianist Oniwosan’s creativity is expressed through custom made jewelry, writing, and dance. She has merged her art with healing holistically.

In 2005, she founded Sankofa’s Child. The focus is to use the arts to engage, build, inspire, and heal individuals, families, and communities. Her commitment has allowed her to work directly with well more than 100,000 children and adults nationally and internationally. Her work’s impact has led to her being asked to speak and lead professional development workshops at national and international conferences.

She has secured several grants totaling almost $100,000. Her desire to employ the arts as a tool for healing is her motivation to keep securing extraordinary grants that transform communities. Her most recent grant is from Broward Foundation to artistically engage in the community of Pompano.

Her most recent projects include YesBabyILikeItRaw.com, a food and holistic lifestyle blog that inspires people to tap into their raw power to be a better version of themselves. She shares articles, interviews, workshops, and retreats worldwide to help them accomplish this. She has committed to changing Haiti’s landscape in a transformative way as the co-founder of Impact Hub Port-au-Prince, a co-working space for social entrepreneurs to grow, thrive, and connect.
