Get to know me…


4FE10DA4-19B9-4689-8603-AFE9E3CBCAB7Hi there, my name’s Kelly. I’m a 21 year old student studying English and Journalism. In the past two years, I have studied in Rome at John Cabot University and in London at St. Mary’s University of Twickenham. Needless to say, I love to travel (especially when the flight is headed to Europe).

In my first year of college, I spent my afternoons drinking coffee and watching poetry on the internet. I became enthralled with the work of Olivia Gatwood, Sarah Kay, Phile Kaye, Rudy Francisco, Courtney Kampa and many more. And so, on a rainy Thursday afternoon, I decided to write my first poem, and since then I’ve been infatuated with words, language, and literature. Keep an eye out in 2021 for the publication of my first collection of poems titled Traces of Coconut. 

“Be abundant, act abundantly, and you will have all you desire.”

Love, Kelly
