My writing focuses on sports and social justice. They depict a person’s struggles and aspirations in the inner city, oppressive mainstream society, and a world where people chant “You can’t do this” when he or she is trying to break stereotypes of (let’s say): autism, being an underrepresented youth, athlete, or rapper shying away from commercialism. I use poetry, blogging, articles, essays, and pod-casting in expressing thoughts.
