In conjunction with academia, I continue to devote time to spoken word poetry and activism. I have been performing spoken word for 10 years. I have performed at UGA’s NAACP image awards and our #SayHerName vigil in 2019. I performed and competed in numerous venues and events along the east coast, including NYC’s Bowery Poetry. I wrote and co-directed a play produced by Emory University’s multicultural theater collective entitled “Candles”. I have also acted in the “Vagina Monologues” and “Mirrors” at Emory. My work was published in “The Pulse: Emory Student Anthology of the Arts”.
