About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    As a young educator with a passion for restoring self-love and cultural reverence, I have found that spoken word is the medium for me. In addition to my spirit transcending on paper, I write personalized poems for a variety of events: weddings, anniversaries, retirements, just to name a few. I am versatile and enjoy experimenting with the countless topics and themes I could write about. However, I specialize in African-American, Women, and Christianity themed works. I love to make my listeners and readers happy. What means the most to me, though, is that my listeners and readers think. Critically. Deeply. And enjoy the process.
