December was certainly a hectic, nonetheless successful month. As an educator, in Roxbury Massachusetts, which surrounds one of top K-12 pilot schools in the Boston Public School system. I had the opportunity to collaborate with a group of intellectuals, entrepreneurs and educators in facilitating a professional development workshop. The workshop encouraged individuals to step into a world of creativity, be it creative writing or visual arts. Participants studied and created visual representation with a heavy influence by literary giants including but not limited to Nikky Finney, Toni Morrison and Carl Phillips.
