When it comes to being an activist, every individual has a different way of rising to the occasion. The same is true with Janette Ikz, who does her activism with style. Miss Ikz uses poetry to fight for what she believes in.
Miss Ikz is a passionate poet who speaks up about her tribulations in the past and how god helps her through it, she also takes it one step further, encouraging young women to speak up about sexual assault by becoming vulnerable to her audience and telling them about her past encounters with sexual assault.
Her form of activism breathes new life Urban Art as she touches the core of individuals through her passion. It is her passion and determination to combine two of the aspects that makes her who she is to make a difference, which inspired me to want to do the same.
With my love for fashion, art, and poetry I look to combine these passions by creating an Fashion-Art show, where I would create fashion pieces and statements that not only goes with but tells the story of Poets across the world, and not just poets but activist, journalist, and every other kind of occupation looking to make a difference in this world. After feedback from my classmates, I am even more encouraged to shoot for the stars and allow what I love to have the opportunity to make a difference in the world.
