BWOMS Fresh Cuts: Emily Llanes - "Poetry"

Welcome to Episode 3 of "Fresh Cuts," a series dedicated to showcasing the works of writers, storytellers, and songwriters in our community. On today's episode we welcome Emily Llanes, an up-an-coming spoken word poet in the scene. 

Emily is an activist on mental illness awareness and uses poetry to express the loss and gains of life. Poetry has guided her into mending old wounds and wishes to help others through her words. Sit back! Relax. Feel free to get naked with your emotions here! “ It’s okay to not be okay“
