Moxiie is a Haitian-American songwriter/recording artist from Brooklyn. She's been releasing original music since 2012 and is set to release new material this year. Moxiie considers herself a songwriter first and believes in the power of words. Often using pain to create, she hopes to give words to those uncomfortable yet common feelings of anxiety and depression while still offering hope and comfort. She's most interested in examining the grey areas of life.
It is those who challenge themselves and are honest that we like to call our Muse of the Week. Moxiie touches on areas that others don't always dive into and speaks the honest truth. Get to know more about Moxiie (2 i's) in my BTS Q&A interview! Thank you for being a part of our Muse of the Week feature. Keep doing what you are doing Moxiie! We are excited for everyone to learn more about you below. xx, Stacy
1. Are you a Subway, Car (via Uber, Lyft), or Other (bus/walk /etc.) girl?
It definitely depends on my day, the way I feel, and the vibes after 11:30pm on the train. Usually I'm a subway girl. Sometimes I can't function without Uber, especially for early call times or long distance trips! On other days when I'm just over MTA, I'm hailing a taxi.
2. Favorite spot to be creative?
My favorite spot to be creative isn't a physical space. I love to create any place I feel safe.
3. Causes you advocate for?
I'd like to say I'm an advocate for Haiti and for equality and freedom across race, gender, and sexual orientation...but I honestly don't feel like I do enough to say that. These are things I'm passionate about and plan to become more active with.
4. Favorite quote?
Currently, it's "I don't give a fuck what anyone thinks about my L, it's my L." - Gary Vaynerchuk
He has so many great ones. This came from him encouraging people not to be afraid to lose and not to care what other people think about your so-called "losses."
5. Tell us about your last moment you shared with someone?
The last moment I shared with someone happened a couple of hours ago in the East Village. I took my uncle's guided meditation class, and afterwards we went to St. Mark's for some Japanese food. We got to share our thoughts, aspirations, and observations about different things. He's actually my uncle and godfather. Growing up he was the closest thing to a father to me, so it really meant a lot to me to get some face time.

P.S. We ask all our Muses to style themselves each week the way they would wear Boy Meets Girl. We absolutely love how Moxiie has styled these pieces.
