Conversations with I Am Tranyce

Today we’d like to introduce you to I Am Tranyce. 

Hi I Am Tranyce, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I am an East Nashville native. I graduated from Belmont University. I ran a popular blog called Urban Threads for five years. Once the pandemic started, I pivoted into podcasting and having conversations with people from across the nation. My podcast is called TruTalks Podcast and available on all major streaming platforms. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It definitely hasn’t been a smooth road. I’ve had to constantly learn along the way. I’ve had to work through audio and technical difficulties, learn remote recording methods and purchase better equipment to enhance my listeners’ experience. Also, I’ve attended many remote workshops and meetings on podcasting and remote recording. It’s been worth the investment in time, money, and energy to connect to so many people across the world who tune in or are guest on the show. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am known for shooting many of Nashville’s festivals, protests/rallies, promotional content for grassroots, and advocacy content for animal conservation at the Nashville Zoo. Also, I am well known for my IGTV gardening series called Let’s Talk Gardening where I bring my followers along in my growing journey in hopes of encouraging them to grow in their current space instead of waiting to acquire more space. I am a YouTuber as well. I am most proud of my creative works and podcast called TruTalks. Through those works, I am able to connect with so many different people and learn something new. 

How do you think about happiness?
I experience happiness when I am one with nature or alone. Anytime I’m outdoors, in my garden, or hiking a TN park, I feel closer to God. Secondly, meditating and performing yoga positions makes me happy because I’m able to really appreciate the temple God has blessed me with. Watching it perform different positions while listening to my body’s limitations is the most rewarding feeling. I grow each time I obey its need versus forcing it to take shape in a way it’s not quite ready for.
