Crystal-Angelee Burrell is currently an undergraduate freshman at Boston University. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, a place where everyday life quickly becomes inspiration for poetry. Other forms of inspiration come from personal feelings, because Crystal thinks that emotions are things that should be given a voice. Some of her favorite poets and writers are Edgar Allan Poe, Gregory Maguire, and Elizabeth Gilbert. Crystal would like to thank her mother, Marcia Beckford, without whom she would not be where she is today. Thank you mom.
