Social Media Handle/Username: @Kapitaalk_
Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi my name is Kris. I’m 19 years old. I’m from Atlanta, Georgia. I’m currently serving in the Air Force in Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota. I also write poetry. I’m a heavy participant in activism, it’s kind of in a weird stage right now because I’m in the military but I’m actually a Pan-Africanist. I’m also into spirituality, I practice southern folk magick called “hoodoo”.
What Inspires You Every day? : Honestly not much. It’s kind of a struggle to get up everyday. Recently though I met this woman and we’ve been together for about a year. We’ve known each other since high school and now we’re together. Talking to her every morning has been my motivation.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: “Go with the flow”: I feel like it’s hard to have control of the wheel all the time and I’ve seen people lose their minds trying to control every aspect of their lives. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and let the higher powers play out some situations.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to be a world renowned poet, and to be able to consume and spread as much knowledge whether physical or spiritual to or from others.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : Honestly I was never a talkative person who went out all the time anyway so I have been doing what I normally do: sitting in my own space minding my business and creating things.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Don’t try to beat yourself up trying to be productive everyday it’s so tiring. Remember to take a rest day to identify your feelings because you can only push those down but so much.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Big things are coming soon. Currently I have an Instagram page with a little following @writtenfromk. My whole idea behind it is I want the color scheme to match different phases of my life and when I go through enough phases to help other people who are going through the same phases. I plan on putting them in a book called “Kolors” when I feel like I’ve written enough. Be on the lookout for that.
