Our Feature this year is Tova Ricardo! Oakland's Youth Poet Laureate!
Sixteen-year-old Tova Ricardo, a junior at Bentley High School, is Oakland’s 2015 Youth Poet Laureate. Tova began writing poetry in 6th grade and fell in love with the ways that words and characters tie together to spark emotion and controversy inside the reader. Tova soon realized that her first loves were literature and poetry, and knew that she had found the one place where she wouldn’t have to conform to society’s expectations. Poetry allows Tova to claim her freedom of expression andexplore issues of race, gender, sexuality, family dynamics, community, and social stigma.
