Astrid began writing short poems in 2014 after issues revolving her family, friends, school, and work took its toll and sent her into a deep depression. After two years of writing, Astrid decided to join the CSU Dominguez Hills poetry club and slam team, For the Love of Writing (F.L.O.W.).
F.L.O.W. exposed her to the realm of poetry through coaching, coordinating, and performing at open-mics and school events. Astrid later became president of the poetry club and captain of the slam team.
Since then, she has continued making appearances all over Southern California as a featured poet! Astrid serves her experiences as a reminder that we are not alone with our emotions by shedding light on issues revolving relationships, women, and politics.
