Alexandra Huynh, National Youth Poet Laureate, Performs Poem at BBBSA’s National Conference

Alexandra Huynh wrote a poem to kick off Big Brothers Big Sisters of America’s 2021 Bigger Together National Conference. Huynh, 18, is a second-generation Vietnamese American from Sacramento, California, who sees poetry both as a means to self-expression and social justice.

“Find shelter and strength in one another to go the distance that spans across what we’ve been given and what we deserve. Self-sovereign smiles and applause at every turn. It’s not so impossible when you start to consider, that we are bigger together as brothers and sisters.”
