Learning Vicariously (Pt.2)

I came across Aja Monet randomly about four years ago at a poetry reading on a Monday night in New York City. She was an undergrad student at Sarah Lawrence at the time.

Since then she's written a book, raised money for  hurricane relief in Haiti, received an MFA, put out an album, moved to Paris, and collaborated with Saul Williams in a second book of poetry. Among other things.

I'm not sure how I missed this video but I am so glad I found it. Aja is an experience, and she truly inspires me to be the change.
