When you have the chance to sit down with Portland’s first ever Co-Youth Poet Laureate, it is only smart of one to record her eloquence.
Alexis Cannard (16), a junior at Roosevelt High School, is a muse in all sense of the word. From her presence in the community to her poetry and vocal capabilities, this young lady has got a mind ahead of its time.
While knowing her previous to her interview, Cannard expressed a level of intelligence and meaning that was just as profound as the fluidity of her poetry.
Allow yourself to groove, as you take a trip in the world of Alexis.
