“Now I know the power of my writing. Gloria Steinem, our Special Advisor, made time to read my work. Need I say more?”
I am 17 years old. I’ve been with Girl Be Heard since September 2012 and I couldn’t be happier. Being born and raised in Harlem, I’ve had to deal with multiple issues such as poverty and hunger, which caused me to be silent about problems affecting me. With GBH, I was given a chance to be heard. With every piece I’ve written I am able to release my pain, frustrations, and love. Without GBH, I wouldnt have discovered my love for acting nor would I have found my second family, a family that lets me be myself and become an inspiration to others with every story I am able to tell.
