Extraordinary Women

This month we interviewed three amazing women who inspired us to follow our dreams and to live our lives to the fullest.

Here are their stories.


Asheville native Aja Cobbs has taken her passion for the arts to create an interactive traveling exhibit.



Like many South Sudanese people, Sarah Joseph-Majak and her family are refugees from the violence and turbulence of life there.



Elizabeth Lashay—the on-air persona of Elizabeth Garland—created and hosts Slay the Mic, a Hip-Hop and R&B radio show that airs Saturdays from 5 to 7 p.m. on 103.3 Asheville FM.
