INNOVATOR PROFILE

NICOLE TANGUAY

Area of Expertise: Poetry

"I think of political poets as being ink warriors. My weapon is my pen and it can be more productive for me to write a piece that speaks to the issue than to take to the streets at times. Though there are times when one needs to put down the pen and take it to the streets. "
