About My Work:

My Work is focused on awareness and empowerment. I am a queer, transgender, femme, sexual assault survivor, Native-Irish American, third cultured (I grew up in a lot of cultures), hard of hearing, and social justice organizer to build community and find solutions. There are barely any transgender poets in the Indianapolis community sharing their stories. My actions and what I say are politicized, thus I use my creative voice to bring attention to issues in the Transgender community, sexual assault prevention community, feminist community, and etc.
