From New York by way of Miami, I fell in love with Spoken Word watching Def Poetry Jam. I’d always loved writing, and I knew then that I had to get on stage. While at the University of Miami, I met my husband at an open mic and the passion of poetry brought us together.
I love the grit and performance of slam poetry, and slammed competitively with the Write Side Poets at Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival. My work has always been fiery, with some of my best pieces emerging after heartbreak and hardship.
The emotions inside you deserve a voice, even if you may not have the words. Instead of an overused quote, use a custom poem to signal a new chapter in your life and your resilience to the world.
