"Mémoire d'une amnésique...But what happens when we can't tell our own stories, when our memories have temporarily abandon us? What is left is longing for something we are not sure we ever had but are certain we will never experience again."
-Edwige Danticat, Create Dangerously: The Immigrant Artist At Work
Describing one's self is a life long project. The pursuit of meaning and purpose never stops until we do. Someone once told me, "If you're not writing your story it'll be written for you".
Who am I?
My name is Vonds and at this point in my story, I am a Web Developer who is passionate about social justice, a poet who centers community empowerment in his work, a collector and teller of stories, an artist who loves deeply and unapologetically, and a visionary who studies and listens to what was, sees and struggles to understand what is, and labors to build what can be.
My life's work is a commitment to an endless process of growth, learning, and sharing because I am only a piece of a larger destiny still being written.What's your story?
