So, the CoKid foundation put up a segment of my talk at the CoKid Talks: Reading Revolution in The Power of Poetry. It’s the second half of the talk already and I’m flailing, by this time. I feel like I was stronger and more clear and more articulate at the beginning of the talk. By this time, I felt like I was talking too much.
Here’s the excerpt of my talk.
I love the fact that I’m doing a talk on literacy and poetry. It’s a far cry from my advocacy work with HIV. I’m just as personal; since poetry is personal to me. But it has nothing to do with shame or mistakes or life lessons. This has everything to do with passion and love and creativity and imagination.
I hope to do more poetry stuff in the future. This week, I’ve been asked to judge a poetry slam and I’ll be conducting my own poetry workshop later this month. I’m excited. This is so much more meaningful to me and it’s really what I want to do.
I hope I get to do more and more of this in the future.
