We had the good fortune of connecting with Treylieus Curry and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Treylieus, how do you think about risk?
When it comes down to risk, it’s tough because it all depends on where you’re looking to go and what God is telling you. If you feel it’s right and worth it, I say don’t overthink it, pray about it, go for it and ask God to lead you in the right direction. Sometimes you may fail sometimes it may work out but as long as you gain something from the whole thing then I say it was worth it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a poet, motivational speaker, keynote speaker, teacher, and host. I’m best known for my storytelling ability and that’s something I’m proud of. I try to incorporate my story into my pieces and allow my sets to flow as such. It’s a fun and creative way to let those that don’t know me find out more about me and hopefully feel inspired.

It hasn’t been easy though. I began doing poetry in church and even as a little boy my grandmother saw something in me, encouraging me to keep going. So as I got older I began going to Open Mics in my city and became a part of the community. I still face challenges daily whether I should continue to pursue my art but I continue to trust God and the process. Even if I don’t sellout venues or gain millions of views I’ll still be content knowing I’m following my passion.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I attribute allot of my success to my family, church, and upbringing. I believe the environment I was brought up in under a servant hard working father, a biblical church home, and a supportive village allow for me to hear God’s voice clearly despite the different situations I was faced with. It has also curated a creative consciousness that I enjoy to explore through my art. The struggle of duality in our choices.
