Kameisha Jerae

Since grade six, Kameisha has always been known for her ability to master and manipulate the English language to express herself. This was made manifest in her working with American University’s WAMU Youth Voices, ThinkMTV, ability to attend the Society of Professional Journalists’ National Journalism Conference, and being published in the Georgetown Journal of Law & Modern Critical Race Perspectives. Because of her achievements at a young age, the continued support that she received was the fire that fueled her in completing and publishing her first collection of poetry, Atlas of Consciousness (2010) and pursuing her interests in poetry and music. Her recent accomplishments include being published in a Canadian anthology named "The Poetry of War and Peace" (January 2012) and winning first place in Cafe de la Pensee's Global Cultural Competition (February 2012).
