Conquer (made from Allure & Seventeen Magazine)


Hurt has many faces
Resistance and acceptance,
history and identity,
loss and hope.

This is a tribute to the people who
just won't quit.
They endure.
The inspire.

Witness a miracle
& dare to come alive.

You are
living proof
of strength

Self Reincarnation (Made from articles from O, The Oprah Magazine)

Self Reincarnation

I've made all
the best mistakes.
I created
flares from flaws.
Learning to fix
to thrive.
I am more than a
I'm the survivor.

El diario de un romance primer (made from Somos Así 3, a Spanish textbook from high school)

I don't speak spanish, but I studied it for years. This is my attempt at a Spanish love poem- I understand it might not be 100% accurate but I wanted to try something new. The intended English translation follows the Spanish poem.

El diario de un romance primer

Cuando se enamora …
No seas mentiroso
Se generoso;
no seas egoista

Siempre me equivoco
Pero eres una maravilla.

Créeme, por favor
Le digo la verdad
Cuando digo cuánto te quiero

Mi amor
Dame la mano
Ven conmigo
Para siempre

English Translation:
The Diary of a First Romance
When you fall in love.../ Do not lie./ Be generous;/ Do not be selfish.
I always make mistakes/ but you are wonderful.
Believe me, please/ I tell you the truth/ when I say how much I love you.
My love/ take my hand/ come with me/ forever.

Check out the video that documents the creation of this poem:

Portraits of Resilience (made from several different copies of People magazine)

Portraits of Resilience

My idea of paradise is
to wake up and
say 'I love you'
To join you
Holy Ghost Girl
So we could be at one.

I don't give up.

I remember
everywhere I go.

Together! (made from Unified Society's pamphlets on Mutual Responsibility from Occupy Wall Street; picture from Bao's takeout menu)


 An exchange of words,
and smiles,
which draws you closer
and closer,
until you begin to feel
strangers who suddenly
feel like home.

We find ourselves in eachother
We become one common body.
nothing but unity
the only thing we need is connection.

together we learn how to fly,
together in thought and in heart.

colorful, strange, and beautiful
hand in hand
no one will rule over us.

Chance (digital collage from


I guess I was dreaming
about passion, love
Everything at the same time.

I saw the light
I was so afraid.
I started at the bottom
Someone asked me to move to the other side.

I needed a miracle.

It's silent
It's beautiful.
All the weakness of this life
Became strength

Passion, love,
Everything came
from this
