From my family, my history, what I want my future to be like, and my surroundings.
What advice do you have for someone that is threatened by poetry?
Never doubt yourself. Not just for poetry, but for anything. Courage is underrated these days!
What is an interesting fact about you?
I don't like sushi. Like, at all. I also think "Ode to Joy" is the greatest composition/song/organization of sound ever.
Where are you from/Where do you live?
I'm from Durham, NC and now reside in Washington, DC.
Who is your favorite poet?
There's too many to name. I've been working as an elementary after school teacher for the past year so I'm actually falling back in love with Dr. Suess.
