‘How do the intersections of our identities influence the way we walk through and are perceived by this world?’ This is the question I attempt to answer through my poems. Echoing the importance of understanding the intersectional impacts of racism, structural injustice, and trauma, and how they make us who we are. Jolie Brownell is a 20-year-old, award-winning Writer, Speaker, and Author of "Me Too" - a collection of quotes, messages, and poems on four main topics: Body Acceptance, Confidence, Goal Setting, and Healthy Relationships. In the past few years, Jolie has spoken to hundreds of women/girls in Portland OR on loving themselves, believing in themselves, and going after their dreams. She has also received the FoundHER's Award in NYC for her work with local Portland girls through her Me Too Girl workshops and partnerships with Girls Inc., I AM THAT GIRL, Produced By Her, ChickTech, and other girl-empowering organizations.
