2015 Progress Report:

Over the course of the past year, I’ve continued to write and perform poetry and was published in the print edition of Teen Ink. I hope to continue to explore issues of current events and global citizenship through my writing.

What “writing for peace” means to me:

To me, Writing for Peace is a vessel for empathy between people who have little in common. It strives to break down barriers which we’ve erected over millennia, and I’m thrilled to be a small part of it.
