Kate Nezelek | TEDxYouth@RVA
Using the power of spoken word poetry, Kate explores the internal struggles we all too often face in life.
She is a poet and spoken word artist, whose work often centers around themes of relationships and internal struggles. She draws her inspiration from her own personal experiences, and uses poetry as a way to clear her mind. Creative Writing is something Kate has been doing since elementary school, but her love of poetry wasn’t found until her freshman year of high school, a time in which she was largely inspired by the works of Andrea Gibson and Shinji Moon. At the end of her junior year, she was honored with the Hollins University Book Award for her passion for creative writing. Kate hopes to pursue spoken word in the future as a possible profession, and continuously searches for the opportunity to do so.
