More About Tyra


“Poetry is at the center of me. So I freak letters and words to birth imagery in hopes that its conception delivers more meaning to my reality. More simply, I write; I influence; I love and this is my marvelous testimony.” (2011)

I have always loved sharing other people’s stories. When I was younger, I enjoyed conducting interviews and I even studied journalism and sociology in college to explore people’s lives and worlds.

Yet, there is something about my poetry and this website that forces me to share my own story, my hopes, and occasionally, even my fears.

My goal has always been to connect people to great stories and to build community. As you read my words, I hope you can take something encouraging for yourself from my experiences.
