In the ‘ELEVATE’ experience, individuals are encouraged to recognize that their next level is closer than they think. Surrendering can ignite the fire within and elevate them into it. Furthermore, it takes a kind of elevation to change, reach for greatness, and become who the creator designed them to be. In a rapidly evolving world, the need to rise, and elevate understanding, skills, and consciousness becomes urgent to adapt to and navigate changes effectively. Progress depends on continually reaching for the highest ideals and potential without losing sight of life’s most important aspects. The ‘ELEVATE’ experience is the brainchild of Shola Amaraibi. Shola Amaraibi is a highly skilled and talented communication strategist and poet who possesses a unique ability to help people discover their individuality, explore their untapped potential, and creatively express themselves. Her exceptional poetry collection, ‘Lest we forget,’ has garnered significant attention, and her works have been widely published in magazines. She is also a gifted spoken word performer, having graced stages both nationally and internationally. Shola holds an MBA in Digital Marketing Strategies from Paris, France, and is the lead communication strategist at Piesocial Pro, a digital agency that specializes in marketing, public relations, copywriting, and digital project execution. As a certified coach, Shola works closely with individuals to identify areas of growth and change they desire. She is also the founder of ‘Sheisavoice,’ a non-profit organization that aims to empower young girls, especially those with special needs, to develop their vocal potential. She is happily married and blessed with two amazing children.
To ‘ELEVATE’ means to transcend beyond one’s mind’s limit. Ralph Waldo Emerson believed that those aspiring to transcend or, in this case, elevate, must have faith in miracles and in the continuous receptivity of the human mind to new streams of light and strength. This is what Shola attempts to do with the ‘ELEVATE’ experience through poetry.

The question arises, ‘What if each soul spoken to is a story of incredible power waiting to be told? What if the difference between purpose and apathy is a single spark that elevates possibilities?’ ‘ELEVATE’ is that spark, a multifaceted poetry experience, blending verse, music, and dance to immerse an audience in empowerment, creativity, and spirituality. It creates an atmosphere where language not only inspires but heals generational strongholds and conditionings that keep people small. Here, poetry becomes the divine art that propels audiences to rise beyond struggles, silence critics, and boldly step into their highest selves. ‘ELEVATE’ is Shola’s life’s mission expressed via poetry — to awaken recognition of the creator’s DNA within individuals through verse, lyric, movement, and sound, breathing life into questions long forgotten. ‘What if your elevating today is the answer to generations unborn? What if your elevating in this season births the solution that heals generations?’ The event, scheduled for March 24th, 2024, coincides with Women’s History Month and the Easter period, symbolically rich with themes of renewal and rebirth. Commemorating Women’s History Month, some works will celebrate and acknowledge the critical role of women in fostering a more equitable and inclusive world.
