A little about me
I was born in Los Angeles, California. My mother is a black Hispanic who was born in Honduras and raised in Belize. My father is white from French descent.
I was taken by the police when I was only a couple months old, as neighbors expressed concern that I would not survive under my mother's care. Both of my parents are mentally ill with violent tendencies, so I was placed in foster care until one of my maternal aunts won custody of me. My aunt raised me in Brooklyn, New York.
My passion for writing started as a little girl. I was an active performer growing up; I took drama classes at Brooklyn College. I majored in dance at Brooklyn HS of the Arts. I started writing raps in 8th grade. I started sharing my raps in high school. I fell in love with poetry and performing spoken word in college.
I returned to California in 2009, transferring from SUNY Plattsbugh to attend UCLA. I graduated from UCLA in 2011 with a degree in creative writing. Before graduating from UCLA, I had the honor of opening up with my spoken word for a dialogue between Dr. Carl West and Carl Dix, causing over 500 people to give me a standing ovation, including Dr. Cornel West, who was enthusiastically jumping up and down. This event sparked a passion for me to travel and share my spoken word at different schools. I love inspiring the youth and adults to stand up and become the change that they want to see in their communities.
I am thankful that I have been able to use my talents to encourage others to pursue their dreams despite their unfortunate circumstances.
I was excited when Shye Eaze invited me to join witEAZEent. The company's vision is exactly aligned with how I want to flourish as an artist. I also had the pleasure of doing a couple of shows with her, and I admire her many talents. I especially love the fact that the company is headed by a female and is composed of other beautiful and talented women. I believe that we all have what it takes to take the entertainment industry to a whole new level.
