Seven things about me that readers might find interesting

- I write poetry and I plan to eventually publish my poetry collection that I wrote in my Journalism/Creative Writing capstone class.
- I am still socially awkward. I am working on that. LOL!
- I wrote a thesis on percussion in hip-hop and how it forms the basis of the music, social organizing and philosophy of not just hip-hop culture, but many cultures in the African diaspora. I plan to publish this too.
