Who is Dwight James III?
I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. I am the eldest of five children from my mom. At Florida State University, I am a senior double majoring in creative writing and theatre with aspirations of being a teacher and filmmaker. Poet by nature, I use my poetry to inspire youth, disrupt the norm, and try things that aren't easy to do. I grew up "traveling" since my mom had habit of moving every few years. She wanted to give my siblings and I a change of environment as she worked to changed our circumstances as best as she could. Being the oldest and family "weirdo", I did everything that wasn't normal or typical. From living with my grandparents for two years after a summer away to spending three months alone in India, the idea of a "stable" home is still new to me. I'm fine tuning my Arabic and Greek to use them in my writing (as well as my daily life). I'm here to serve, show love, and create. Everything I do revolves around those "pillars". I love teaching, Soulection, reading, my girlfriend, family, and the act of creating. My #1 goal is to correct and build my city, one person at a time and I plan to do just that through everything I do. I wish excellence and breakthrough upon all those that spared their time for me. Asé.
