“If I ever really did what I wanted, I wouldn’t be at Penn. I’d be in some random area of Brooklyn throwing paint on the walls and calling it art while reading Toni Morrison before I fell asleep. I’d be writing poems on sidewalks. I would have a huge afro that would be going off in all kinds of different directions at all different lengths. I would raise kids, but never get married. I would consider clothes optional.”

– Raven Rakia, circa 2008.
