Who is Zizzo?
She is Zizzo the Phynix, a “Breath of Fresh Air” quoted by many. She is the epitome of a survivor by many standards including being diagnosed, battling and winning her fight with stage 4 cancer at the age of 21, further earning herself the title of a Pheonix (Phynix) and rising.
No stranger to the ups and downs of life, at a young age she faced many challenges that many would judge as being a cause for detriment, but instead Zizzo explored within her creativity and used it as an outlet to self expression, and therapy.
Born and raised in Staten Island, NY (home of Christina Aguilera, The Wu-Tang Clan and the Legendary Force M’D’s) she was raised in a single parent home, which posed many challenges for the young mixed-race girl. In facing many trails and tribulations growing up, she still persisted her way through earning the name Phynix by peers and elders. Influenced by music at a young age, in playing the saxophone in grade school, and learning to write poetry as a way to cope and deal with life. Over time her poetry turned into “raps” and songs.
After her near death battle with stage 4 cancer in 2004, she set out to live her dreams in the music business as a Hip Hop Artist in 2006. After being met with many challenges throughout her journey in the music business she still persisted her way into creating and releasing two mix tapes “Diamond from the Rock Vol 1 & 2” and an EP “From the Ashes”.
Even making her way onto the Legendary Apollo Theater’s Amateur Night, and walking a way a winner. As she pursued her passion for performing, she graced multiple stages in showcases and shows all throughout the East Coast, even performing along side the touring show “Break”. Opening shows for the legendary Chubb Rock, as well as working with Dana Dane, and DJ Johnny Juice in Terror Dome Studios just to name a few.
Along her journey in life and music, Zizzo also experienced many internal challenges that forced her to explore deeper into her mental health, spiritual and self development aspects of life. Helping her to gain a healthier mindset through learning self love & development practices, applying them, and continuously learning, which gave her a renewed sense of life.
In learning these tools, and then having tremendous progress and success within her life, pushed Zizzo to want to share this information, and wisdom acquired from her experiences in hopes to help others.
Currently Zizzo is still active in creating, recording and performing music. As well as publishing multiple books, and providing insightful Self Development teachings as a Holistic Self Love Coach through the creation of “The Full Aspect”. And later forming her company Full Aspect LLC.
With the Release of her debut book “Stage Four… A Cancer Survivors Story, foreword by the Legendary Chubb Rock, and later, “The Secret Power of Journaling… Learn how to use Writing to Manifest Happiness Now”, accompanied by “The Flowers for Life” Guided Journal Book series to assist in your own Journaling journey to Self-Love, Mindset Training, and Healing. Wendy Zizzo continues being a guiding light, and inspiration for those who seek to find their own internal happiness and Joy.
