Felizia Hunt aka Freedom Speaks (Ase) is best known as a writer and performer, but she gets the most satisfaction from being an "idea person." She has created a diverse, catalog of original, "high concept," treatments that span several film and TV genres.
Freedom began her stage training at Bernice Johnson's Cultural Arts Center, in Jamaica NY, at the age of three. She has extensive training in ballet, modern, tap, jazz, and African (interpretive) dance. She also choreographed numbers for high school musicals and show choirs.
By 2003, Freedom Speaks was known as one of Atlanta's top spoken word artists, opening for Def Poetry Jam on Broadway at the Fox Theatre, appearing on Robert Townsend's "Spoken" on The Black Family Channel, and doing hundreds of performances per year. She was recently the featured guest for Women's History Month at University of West Georgia, where she delivered her "Unsaid" compilation, about the things older women don't teach younger women, but should.
Freedom writes under several pseudonyms and is the author of three poetry books, two novels, several business books, and home-study programs. Her erotic short stories are published as "Tigress Healy," in books that have stayed on The New York Times Bestseller List.
In 2011, Freedom completed her license and certification to become a money coach, and uses her skills to help high-earning women overcome money-in-relationships problems and cope with the downside of living in the spotlight.
For up-and-coming writers and performers, she offers book coaching and performing arts coaching.
When it comes to useless facts, Freedom is a former vegan with vegetarian tendencies, and is fluent in Spanish only when lost in Spanish-speaking countries. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Freedom has a B.S. in Behavioral Science with an Emphasis in Community Health.
