CA: There's an African proverb that says, "until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter." I carry this with me in every project that I approach. I write for the people. Our voices have been filtered for so long, I feel like I don't have time not to address the uncomfortable. My mission is to tell my story, your story, our story. It's my duty to embrace every aspect of our humanity, and create narrative with intention. I want to make people laugh just as much as I make people cry. Whether you're reading my work in a book or you're in the theater I want you to feel. I want you to see yourself. Even if my writing takes you to the place you don't like to talk about, I want you to know I've already been there in order to make it easier for you. I write like home.
