New TEDx Talk at the LSE
I was invited to give a talk at the London School of Economics on International Woman's Day: March 8, 2014. I decided to write a poem dedicated to all the men out there.

Giving at TED talk in Amsterdam!
The theme of this year's TEDxAmsterdamWomen's conference is "Dare To Choose." I dare to choose LOVE. The title of my talk is... "Love Will Save Us." My proposal on what it's going to take to change the world we live in today-- from one deeply entrenched in wars and fear, into one that is peaceful and harmonious.

Nowhere Near A Damn Rainbow: Poeticians Anthology
