Zakia Ringgold is the Owner of Natural Soap By Zakia and Creator of Live Soap School where she teaches people around the world the art and science of soap making. Comparing soap making to the ancient arts of alchemy in her mind, it captured her curiosity as a way of transforming simple elements into something which could have a precious value. Living and live streaming from Philadelphia, PA, with her two daughters: Nyla and Paige, Zakia truly enjoys inspiring others to unlock their creativity through the craft of making soap. You may catch Nyla just out of camera range, as she practices her singing and dancing, while Paige makes her own version of soap pies right alongside mom while broadcasting Live!
