Being vocal in color is about the unapologetic presence of minority people in a society.

As a woman of color with a righteous and vibrant mind, I oftentimes find myself as a token amongst others. Expressing my emotions verbally has always been a challenge for me, but artistic outlets help me to communicate.

With the focus on intersectionality and diversity I strive to expose the conflicting paradigms in society that hinder one’s individual expression.
