Maquita is a storyteller currently based in the Washington, D.C. area that discovered her love for literature after taking a required Shakespeare class during her undergraduate studies. Her love for words, art, women empowerment, God and self-expression led her to poetry, storytelling and becoming a writer. When she isn't working her 9-5, accommodating her daughter's social life or laughing obnoxiously with admirable souls she hopes to take wherever she goes, Maquita is writing (and smiling, she likes to smile).

“I didn't come looking for you the day you uninvitedly appeared on my doorstep

How did we go from nonchalant conversation
me waiting for you to turn me off
with corny jokes and mind dumbing conversation

What are you here to teach me?”

She suspected he would be as well
And the thought of two rare, few and far between individuals
Doing all that was necessary for that rare, few and far between
Meeting to occur
Drove her to write”
