She has turned her pain and joy, courage and optimism into pages and pages of slam poetry that she shares onstage and in the classroom with children all over the country. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Howard University and a Master’s Degree in Communications from Syracuse University. Her work with children who are suffering loss has been featured in a TedEd talk, on CBS 60 Minutes, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun and the New York Times.
