In today’s podcast interview, I am sitting down with the amazing and incredibly talented Morgan Harper Nichols! Morgan humbly shares her journey of overcoming imposter syndrome, taking small steps in the direction of her dreams, and truly owning her story as she used her voice and gift to overcome self-doubt. She talks about how she is still working through fear and insecurities from her childhood experiences, but through her trust in God, is growing each and every day by giving herself grace and time.
Morgan Harper Nichols is a writer and artist who makes her work around people and their stories. Her song, “Storyteller” has garnered over 1 million Spotify plays and her self-published book of poetry by the same title is a #1 Amazon Bestseller in Inspirational Poetry. Morgan lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband Patrick Kekoa, and has made her life’s work about creating for the stories of others, through music, words, art, and design. As an artist, she has been a part of several GRAMMY nominated projects as a vocalist, and as a songwriter, has been a part of numerous projects, including a Billboard #1 single performed by her sister, Jamie-Grace.
Morgan began her career as a college admission counselor in 2010 months after graduating with her bachelor’s degree. After years of sharing her work online and playing local events, in 2012, she transitioned into a full-time touring musician. While on the road, she began writing more poetry, devotionals, and prose late at night on the tour bus after shows. She would write for certain people that came to her mind, however, she would rarely share any of it with them directly. Instead, she would post them on places like Tumblr and Pinterest. When her online writings began to spread and her daily shares began to increase, she began to explore the many ways a message of hope could spread beyond what she thought was possible, and she has been creating for others full-time ever since.
Morgan is now a full-time writer, artist, and musician, and travels on a monthly basis to teach and perform.
