girl Child

The TruthAIDS family of artisans is growing. These artisans use their craft and talents to teach about lessons that heal. The newest addition to the family is Lily.

lily(like the flower), grew up in Compton, California and began writing poetry, songs and short stories at the age of ten. lily spends much of her time writing, promoting her first book girl Child (The Transition in Poetic Form) and hosting poetry/ self-expression workshops for at-risk youth. lily is currently working on her first spoken word album and a second collection of poetry.

As an author, poet and lyricist, lily's strong voice holds true behind the powerful message of acceptance and self-love that she promotes in her poetry and music. We will be using her book in the TruthCircle efforts as well as our National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness event scheduled in Philadelphia, NYC, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
