In this video, Nate Howard, a professional speaker, educator, and poet, uses his gift—the power of expression—to discuss how poetic meditation helped to define his personal story. Here, he opens up about his own journey, from fighting stereotypes while growing up in southern California to finding his sense of identity and purpose. Poetry and activism helped him break others misperceptions of himself (including his own) and show the world who he truly is. Watch this clip to learn more about how Howard grew to accept himself through words and meditation, become the narrator to his own story, and ultimately help others find their own voice through poetry and workshops at his nonprofit organization, Movement BE.
