She was among the top 30 winners of the Wingword Poetry Prize 2017 and was featured in the highly prestigious The Poet’s Showcase and Yearbook in the same year.

One day you’ll realize
I’m not worth it,
And leave.
I know that day
Will come.
And maybe then
I’ll stop picking
On my way home;
Come. Lie down.
Not leave the room
For a week.
And that will be the end of me.
