A seasoned performance artist, Nina Brewton has spent over two decades blending her talent in film, stage and spoken word into a career that knows no bounds. With an eclectic mix of grit, curiosity, and sheer optimism, Nina’s body of work was built from the ground up; layer by layer. An Air Force veteran, Nina was stationed at Langley AFB in Hampton, Virginia which placed her in close proximity to the arts scenes throughout the northeast and the Mid-Atlantic regions as well as the mecca — Atlanta. During this time, she cultivated her talents as a performer and found her passion as a host — bringing her energy, lifeand light to audiences in both private and public sectors.
As a sought-after speaker, Nina has found her story and personal triumphs as a beacon of light to motivate others. Workshops, experiential offerings, and intimate gatherings are the foundation of Nina’s work. She is dedicated to helping audiences find their truth through powerful self-discovery and mindfulness. In 2012, she self-published her memoir, Dramas of a Bald Head Queen and a year later, debuted a book of poetry, Heart of a Queen: Poetry and Prose from the Soul. Nina frequently produces lively and engaging content on her #WeBeTheLight blog and social feeds to inspire others. The self-proclaimed @baldheadqueen is open and honest about her journey and her life of creativity and resiliency. Learn more
