Alexis Nikole Nelson
Alexis Nikole Nelson is a forager and outdoor educator using her platform to yell about all the edible plants hiding in plain sight! Whether she’s teaching audiences which seaweeds are delish or turning acorns into cheese, she does so with a song and a smile. While always lighthearted, Alexis uses her interests in foraging to connect with and educate on African American and Indigenous food traditions that have historically been repressed. Her foraging tips, recipe videos, and food history lessons have led Alexis to amass over 5 million dedicated fans across platforms.
Her mom said she had to list her accolades so she’s awkwardly going to put them here: James Beard Award for “Best Social Media” 2022, Forbes 30 Under 30, TikTok Tastemaker, Fortune Magazine’s Creator 25 2021.
As Alexis would say, happy snacking, don’t die!
