Shaunteka LaTrese Curry is an artist in every essence of the word. Shaunteka has been speaking and writing since she came into the spiral called earth. At an early age, she embraced her gifts one actively making known, the other she hid until she could no longer contain it. Getting a taste of success early in life by performing at the World Renown Carnegie Hall she saw what her future was becoming, too much for someone so young. Upon that epiphany her writing became more dominant and singing took a back seat. It wasn't until the two worlds collided via and invitation to sing along side a friend at a spoken word venue, did she realize she had been unfair to herself. That night she found comfort in knowing at anytime she could enjoy both her passions at the same time. Shaunteka LaTrese has overcome strong holds that have crippled her mentally, socially, and spiritually. Focusing on the internal beauty of her life, she uses the gifts given to mentor and help individuals who find themselves broken and alone. Poetry has given her life true purpose which she intends to share. A native of Birmingham, Alabama currently living in Atlanta, Ga. Shaunteka LaTrese Curry spends her time as an active member of Toastmasters International and the Speak Life Arts Foundation, an organization Shaunteka and friend created after they realized the lack of writing and performing arts missing from schools and local communities.
