About R.E.J.J. Arts: Welcome to my website! My name is Reagan Jackson.
R.E.J.J. Arts is the epicenter of my creative storm. Multiplicity is a reoccurring theme in my life and my work. My multiple identities influence and inform my passions and interest. In addition to being a spiritual, black, feminist, woman, I am a writer, artist, traveler, teacher, and activist.
Rather than attempt to silo my worlds I embrace and create points of connection. I write poetry about my activism. I paint pictures about my spiritual practice. I meditate to art and in general try to live an integrated, enriching life. I will never be just one thing or be confined to one modality of self-expression. R.E.J.J. Arts is a glimpse into the evolution of my creative life.
About Me: I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, but Seattle is my home and the base of my many travels. When I was a kid and contemplating being a writer, a friend told me that in order to be a good writer I should have something to write about. That sparked a passion for travel and adventures, one that became a part of my career path. I had aspirations of becoming a travel writer, but instead became a high school study abroad program administrator. I am currently a Program Manager for Young Women Empowered. I co-create opportunities for youth to find their voices and build themselves into the leaders their communities so desperately need.
I am an award winning journalist. You can find my byline on the Seattle Globalist and the South Seattle Emerald.
My next big adventure is podcasting. Check out The Deep End.
