When did you first start writing?
I first started writing poetry my ninth grade year in high school. The teacher ask us to write a poem and it went from there.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It heals my soul and it takes me on a journey of self discovery. It's like a vacation for me.
In the end, it does not matter what people think of you. It’s what you think of
yourself. A true queen is one that can walk that walk not caring about what society feels
that they should be. She lets her light shine so people can see what God made her to be.
