Today was another committee meeting with the rest of Slam. We did vocal exercises and practiced performing our poems. I was one of the people who got to perform in front of all of PFO after the meeting. I was so nervous to perform, but I got up there and was really inspired by my non-profit. I was so proud of my words and my purpose. I felt accepted by the group and validated as a writer. I’m so excited for the Connecting Charlotte performance! I can’t wait to meet the people who inspired my poem!
