My Story

I started this blog because a professor I cherish deeply told me I should share my writing with the world. I have never been good at this sort of thing, but I do greatly enjoy sharing my stories and my opinions. I think poetry and storytelling are such profound manifestations of art that heals. Feminism, activism, and poetry have saved my life and inspired the work I do every single day. I am a survivor of sexual violence, I am a student, I am a teacher, I am a healer, and I am healing. I love this beautiful life and the joy and suffering it has opened up to me. I am grateful to be here today to share my story with you
