WRITE YOUR OWN FUTURE | THE MIRANDA WRITES INTERVIEW

Miranda Writes, snowboarder and hip hop artist from New York, talks about her relationship with snowboarding and how to make it more accessible

Thinking back about what snowboarding has given us, not only as a tool to be able to enjoy nature but also the community it has opened us up to, it has helped to shape many of us into the person we are today.

“I feel like there’s a conversation that needs to be had about the lack of women in sports, the lack of people of colour in sports, and through my music I want to highlight the lack of diversity in sports and the gender inequality we are seeing within sport in general”

Miranda Writes, a hip hop artist from New York, found snowboarding to be a way for her to escape the grimes, a no-judgement zone where she could just be herself. Through her music and work for the Chill Foundation, she wants to make the sport more visible and accessible for people.

We sat down with Miranda to talk about her music, her work with the Chill Foundation and what she’s doing to help make snowboarding and the outdoors a safer place for people from different backgrounds, ethnicities and genders.

Would you mind telling us a bit about who you are, what you do…
I’m a hip hop artist and I also happen to snowboard. I started making more extreme sports-inspired music because I felt like I didn’t really know any women that snowboarded, so it was just a way of trying to find other riders who were like me. It just became this movement and me making that music was a way to connect with people. I feel like there’s a conversation that needs to be had about the lack of women in sports, the lack of people of colour in sports, and through my music, I want to highlight the lack of diversity in sports and the gender inequality we are seeing within sport in general.
