My pronouns are she/her, they/them, Queen, and Goddess. I’m a poet, artist activist, and drag queen. I want to change the world by spreading love and kindness to myself and others. I want to inspire others to be themselves, to be proud of themselves, to love themselves, to be kind to themselves. My activism started in high school. I saw that the system wasn’t benefiting me as a queer person of color. My goal in life is to just be myself as a Black, queer, transwoman and change the system so people who look like me can benefit, too. I am fighting so that the youth won’t have the same fight that I’m having right now. Remember to always love yourself, be kind to yourself, and be who you are. Always shine your bright light like the star you are.
