Bio

Phenomenon The Poet is the underground greatness that the concrete couldn't contain, so she burst through the rubble to arrive on Mainstreet. Hailing from the grime of Chicago, she has become an American Dream for underprivileged urban youth. At 26 years young she has accomplished what decades of movements would be proud of. From a shelter, to owning her own company, to preparing to attend Harvard University, she defies circumstances.

She's a Windy City Times 30 under 30 Award Recipient. As well as a published author (with novels shelved in the United States as well as Sydney & Melbourne Australia), and traveling Performance Artist. She has shared the stage with the best in the Spoken Word Industry such as:

B.E.T. Lyricist Lounge All-Star & HBO Def Poet
M'RELD

HBO Def Poet
Triple Black

B.E.T. Lyricist Lounge All-Star
U.G.L.Y.

HBO Brave New Voices Veteran & American Theater Magazine's
Deja K. Taylor

There is no secret that she is exactly what stages are missing. Her sound is loud and aggressive, encouraging & necessary. Audiences have cried, empathized, laughed, exhaled, and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing her talent. Phenomenon The Poet is more than a poet; as shown when she received the first standing ovation given to a Spoken Word Artist at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas at the LGBT Family Fest in 2010.

Holding the attention of scholars, blue collars and goths alike. She is a walking show that everyone can relate to and enjoy!
