Welcome to Where I Come From. We are a group of young women going on a journey about our lives in Carteret County, North Carolina. We documented our process, and today we're hosting Wilmington, North Carolina spoken word  poet Brittani Smith. Smith will perform and give us tips for our own writing. We'll also recite and discuss North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green's 'Paper Dolls'.

Where I Come From is a project of Coastal Youth Media in collaboration with I Am Her  in Beaufort, North Carolina. This project is funded in part by a grant from the Carteret County Arts Council and the North Carolina Arts Council with additional funding from North Carolina Local News Lab Fund.
