I'm grateful to have participated in this class. Thank you, Khadijah for such an insightful workshop. Thank you for creating a (virtual) safe and creative space in which to learn, grow, challenge my perspective, share, and deepen my love for language. I'm eager to take another class with Khadijah. I'm still basking in the joy I received from this workshop.
