Many problems in the world spring from people’s refusal to respect each other and simply treat one another fairly. Racial inequality is among the lingering issues humans deal with today that significantly affect the quality of life some people are living. This is a gap that life advocate Layla Michaels hopes to close.
A singer, actress, and model, Layla Michaels is a creative person. She is a modest, loyal, and caring individual who is passionate about using her skills and talents to better the community she lives in. The advocate loves to fix broken things and help broken people get back up.
When asked about her future plans, Layla Michaels shares that she is working towards operating several homeless shelters soon. She will be housing people in need of a home, uplifting them, and giving them another chance at life.
“I take the broadest possible view of diversity. I value the visible and invisible qualities that make an individual or an entity who they are and what they represent,” she shares. Layla Michaels welcomes the perspectives and experiences of people from different cultures and backgrounds—she believes that one can learn so much from merely listening to what other people have to say. The talent believes in everyone’s right to have the resources to make better communities. “I strive to include diversity, equity, and inclusion practices at the center of my daily work,” she continues. “I commit to using these practices for my business, my brand and our communities.”
Layla Michaels believes that the key to motivating people to engage with one another is to make them feel safe and that they belong. “I strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative—where there is a deep sense of pride, passion, and belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language, or country.”
Through experience, the advocate has seen the value of putting together different ideas and perspectives and how this openness can be powerful. Together, people from different backgrounds can create a healthier and more creative environment that delivers better results. This is the kind of society Layla Michaels dreams of. She envisions an inclusive world, where everyone is handled with the utmost dignity, respect, and loyalty.
Aside from her commitments and vision to make the world better, Layla Michaels also shares that she is a romantic. “I am a woman who wants to help, get involved, and give my partner the very best so we can build a better life and be happier together,” she shares. “My kindness and support can reach the point of insult where my partner might ask himself if I think he is incompetent to do anything on his own.” The advocate explains that while this may be so, she simply wishes to offer all she can for the people she loves. Layla Michaels considers herself a trustworthy person and takes pride in her faithfulness when committing to a relationship. However, she admits that she has a tendency to be silent when feeling hurt or disappointed and that this is one quality she does not advertise.
