About the Performance:
How do you find your voice and turn it into a career? Through a mix of poetry performance and conversation, Britta B illustrates how she first came to recognize her voice through spoken word poetry and how it turned into her career. Her talk explores themes of identity, diversity, women’s empowerment and resiliency as a platform for creative and thriving communities.
