Roxanne A. Stokes was raised in Harlem, New York. Her life began during one of the biggest hurricanes to hit New York City in 1985 and it’s been an eventful journey ever since. She was born with Moebius Syndrome and not only has it affected her body but her whole life and perspective. She always used writing and music as ways to process her thoughts and emotions. The New York Daily News published her writing at the age of 11 and she plans on being a published poet and author of fiction and nonfiction prose. She’s always looked for ways to serve others from a young age and continues to do so through involvement in her church, sorority and mentoring youth in her community.
Roxanne earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in Philosophy from Smith College in Massachusetts and is currently attending law school. When she’s not busy studying she continues working on her creative writing, improving her health and fitness, participating in volunteer work and pursuing her career goals in education law and creative writing.
Roxanne is a sassy, fun-loving and goal-oriented 20-something woman who loves life, traveling, and pursuing her dreams and passions. She is a work in progress continually striving to improve herself so that she can continue to inspire others.
