Chanel Speedy is a Harlem native who enjoys life and offers her knowledge, experiences and gifts to others as an enlightening point for motivation. She believes learning is an activity within itself because it provokes change and adds the factor of common ground and different elements of thoughts. Chanel Speedy started writing at the tender age of 7 years old turning in her ballerina shoes and tu tu for a pad and pencil.
In the beginning, Chanel Speedy would write her feelings down on paper and, then burn it to release her troubles; until Ms. Davis read a poem she wrote on a crumbled piece of paper and bought her a notebook while making her promise never to let her work go to waste or for her to ever be silenced. Although she picked up other hobbies such as: karate and basketball writing has always been her passion and music was not too far behind.
Her love for words came from her mother daily quizzes after reading the dictionary, completed countless book reports on top of completing her school assignments. In her own words she is in a relationship with words they help her to express herself. She believes that her writing can captivate any audience because although we all are different people we are one in the same. She strongly believes that hearing, reading and performing spoken word or speaking words are three different entities of feelings that are captured. Her goal is to share the insight she has acquired overtime and help others have a sense of connection that they are not alone.
