About the Book

My book Raw is about self-reflection and embracing the inner-self. I tell a story about my life through each poem- sharing my personal experiences when dealing with grief, love, happiness and sadness. I immediately found great comfort and healing by writing poems after the sudden death of my father on October 10, 2021. I hope that my poems will inspire others to look within themselves and share their own stories.
