Special Guest Words Taylor:
Words Taylor is a spoken word poet born and raised in Chicago, IL. His love for poetry came out of need for an outlet to release anger and hurt from some childhood experiences. He has always admired the power of voice and how it can be used as a weapon of hope in our lives. He has now made it his personal mission to equip every young person and adult with this weapon. He believes there is freedom in knowing the power of our words. If you were to ask Words Taylor what he is most proud of, he would say being a “Believer”, a husband to a great woman, and a father to a phenomenal little girl; everything else comes after that. He has a passion for serving people and seeing them live their dreams.
