The feeling of self-discovery, for me, is perennial.
Having a superpower has nothing to do with the ability to fly or jump, or superhuman strength. The truest superpowers are the ones we all possess: willpower, integrity, and most importantly, courage.
Rappers were my storytellers.
The idea of the mask in any scenario has always fascinated me. Not only does it protect identity, it also allows one to hide.
I wanted to be a poet. I fell in love with poetry around eight years old, but not through literature. Instead, it came through hip-hop lyrics and my obsession with reading liner notes. Queen Latifah's 'Black Reign' is the album that stands out the most.
Rap music was a savior to me.
