Write Your Own Story & HSA 101
Embracing your story is so important when sharing what makes you unique. We will gather to read excerpts from various urban writers, view short videos, and at times hear from the poets/writers themselves to better understand their story and inspiration to share and express through words. Members will build literacy skills, self-reflection, awareness, and communication while sharing their stories through spoken word, interpretation, and more.
