Growing up, no adult ever asked Justice English about her problems or ways to fix them. And, she had plenty of trauma to work through, including homelessness, domestic violence, bullying, etc. But, with the support of I Am M.O.R.E., a few teachers, and mentors, she was able to get on the right path.
Justice developed confidence to advocate for herself. And, she uses her experiences to create poetry out of tragedy so that she can help others recognize that they, too, are not alone, and that they, too, can create a beautiful life from ingredients that some might have assumed were worthless. Performing her poetry before audiences, large and small, also built her courage.
Justice, one of I Am M.O.R.E.'s three youth co-founders, wants to become an educator and a journalist to help tell stories. She seeks to empower others because she knows what it's like to deal with so much stress and heartache, and not be able to focus on yourself or on school.
