#ScholarSpotlight: Xiara C.

Crafted by Hand
Xiara C.

When you look at me you see independence.
My face, covered in craft and talent.

My eyes are focused on the prize.
I am looking away from the criticism surrounding me,
looking toward my future.

My ears
are shut,
cancelling the negativity.
I am used to hearing
you can’t do it.

The only thing holding me
up is my dream. I am ready
to let go of the past that
haunts me. I want

to take hold of my life.
