I'm RivaFlowz or Erica, it depends on the day. I'm a born again Brooklynite and loving it. I freelance articles, teach English at the infamous Harlem Children's Zone, perform spoken word and fool around with graphic design from time to time. We took some time apart, but we're getting reacquainted. My boyfriend is a comic book geek/pharmacist. So I'm often entertained and rarely sick. Unless you count my journal obsession. I'm a recovering journal addict. No seriously, I can't even walk into a Barnes & Noble anymore. Accolades: HBO Def Poet, Slam Connoisseur, Champion Cupcake Eater, Hampton Alum Not necessarily in that order. Oh yeah! I'm currently writing my first book.
