Very proud to announce that I am Oakland's 2018 Vice Youth Poet Laureate. Congratulations to Leila Mottley, Oakland's 2018 Laureate.
I am so incredibly grateful to be named the Youth Speaks Teen Poetry Slam Grand Slam Champion for the second year in a row. Unfortunately, I will have to turn down my spot on the Brave New Voices team this year. I wish the best to all of the poets on the team.
