Who am I?
I am an award-winning spoken word artist, published poet, and public speaker from Kansas City. I published my first book, Mile Marker 17, at seventeen years old. I am a passionate learner, and I believe one of the best ways to effect change is through dialogue. My mission is to use my words to speak life, encouragement, and hope to everyone I encounter.
What am I up to right now?
I am in a new chapter in my life! I graduated from Rockhurst University in 2019 with a major in English (writing and literature) and a minor in Leadership Development. I am the Coordinator, Volunteer Services, of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. One of my greatest desires is to give back to my community. One of the ways I have been serving, albeit socially distanced, is by compiling all of my race-related content onto one page as a free resource to educators and anyone looking to create spaces for dialogue on systemic racism, police brutality, empathy, and ways to to be the change.
