About Me

I am an undergraduate student at Temple University.  From a young age, I developed a joy for writing short stories and plays.  However, my greatest love was (and will always be) poetry.  Throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years I have written poetry as a form of creative and emotional expression.  Poetry has brought me through many rough times, and has taught me the healing power of words.  It is the reason I am still here today, and it is the reason why I’ve decided to venture onto WordPress.

As a Public Health major concentrating in Social and Behavioral Sciences, I believe my career paths are unlimited.  I hope to one day encourage people in the black community to jump-start their healing process through holistic health education, spiritual exploration, creative outlets, and more.  From my own experiences, I believe generational trauma is real, and I also believe that it can be conquered, day by day, one step at a time, one poem at a time.

With love and gratitude,

Destini Renée
