Cecilia Nelson-Hurt

Cecilia Nelson-Hurt is a proud Afro Latina who was taught to crochet as a child by her Grandma Sophie. She learned to knit many years later by calling on a combination of books and the friendly assistance of her local yarn shop owner. Known to many in the fibre community as 'Creative Ceci' she is a global knitting and crochet enthusiast.

In her day job Ceci is a Diversity & Inclusion practitioner for global brand L'Oreal and has over 15 years experience developing and executing initiatives to create an equal opportunity workplace. As a marketing consultant, professional development coach and motivational speaker she leverages her training and experience as a speaker at many fibre events and is also an inaugural member of the 'Vogue Knitting Live!' Diversity Advisory Council.

At the intersection of passion and purpose, Cecilia combines her love for knitting, advancing diversity and inclusion with fostering a sense of belonging in order to create a more inclusive fibre community.

A self-proclaimed citizen of the world, Cecilia loves to travel and ensures she visits a yarn shop wherever she goes. To date she's visited over 150 shops both across the USA and internationally, chronicling those travels on her 'CeciKnitsTheWorld' YouTube channel.
