Nubia DuVall Wilson is a survivor igniting social impact through storytelling. A master communicator, Nubia is a published author, journalist and founder of Cielo Consulting, a boutique public relations and marketing agency based in the New York City metro area. As a storyteller, her mission is to liberate survivors of the struggles of life after enduring sexual abuse by curating content that supports their wellbeing and gives them a voice and a community to embrace the reality of living and loving after an assault. In May 2018, she published her second book, The Survivors Club, a supernatural novella inspired by her journey to heal as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. When Nubia is not managing the day-to-day operations of her firm, she speaks to organizations, groups, and survivors to break through the silence around the high prevalence of child sexual abuse in the United States. With a deep understanding of this issue among women of color, Nubia’s talks highlight the long-term effects of abuse into adulthood, such as PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), parenting, leadership, and body positivity. Wilson is a graduate of Barnard College, Columbia University, with a degree in English and a minor in Religion. Today, she resides in New Jersey with her husband and two kids, as she works on her next project that brings a voice to survivorship, a mind-bending TV pilot, inspired by The Survivors Club.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
