I find joy in exploring the complexities of life through language. When I was a threatened and abused child, I still felt a sense of purpose when I could describe a person's characteristics, I found a refuge when I could empathize with an event or write a poem about what felt painful.
Today I want to write about topics that are hard to talk about; about children and adults who are struggling. I write against oppression, against mental illness. I believe in life and I want to highlight the beautiful things, as well as the difficult. My own life has been hard, but healing and learning means renewed strength and joy.
