Jasmine Babineaux: Poetry is...
Creating Space for the Self
Poetry has always been an act of creating a space for myself in which I can be whole, confidently spiritual, and using a poetic message to speak to people.
I am a local of Lafayette, Louisiana; Brooklyn, New York; and Cape Town, South Africa. I am a Senior at St. Norbert College, finishing a degree in Business Management and Writing. I’m a published poet with a book entitled, “Scraps to Food.” I’ll be attending graduate school for Student Affairs in Higher Education after graduation in May. I'm a lover of people, New Orleans, and mule shoes!
