Poet. Artist. Writer. Motivational Speaker.
I am Roojerry Dangervil. I graduated with a degree in Communications from Florida International University in Miami, Fl. Some days I bottle my emotions, other days I immortalize my pain on stage, and on others I write until I lose feeling in the palm of my hands. I guess you can say I'm a poet (and a writer). As an artist, I blend self-reflection, transparency, wit, and wordplay to create my pieces. I use my life story to discuss race, religion, gender, and societal constructs as a means to dismantle toxic ideologies and shed light on topics that are otherwise seen as taboo. My goal is to use my words to impact, motivate, inspire, and remind people that they are not alone in their struggles.
My hobbies include brunching, discussing conspiracy theories, listening to songs that I like over and over until I eventually hate them, and convincing people that they have far more potential than they give themselves credit for. I'm just a lover of life. I struggled with depression, so I know what it likes to feel alone in room full of people. I know what it's like to feel like the world is against you and what it's like to not have anyone to turn to. I was there. I understand you.
I'm from relatively humble beginnings; a descendant of two Haitian immigrants who came to America with nothing but a dollar and a dream. My goal is to use my dream to give them back every dollar they ever gave me and then some.
I'm a pretty ambitious guy with hopes of someday living lavishly, but I'm also free-spirited and will let life take its course. I'm a firm believer in living your absolute best life, and that's the ultimate goal; to be as happy as I can possibly be. I created this blog for several reasons:
- to hold myself accountable (cause Lord knows I am the king of procrastination.)
-to create a safe space for millennials to realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that there are people out there like them with flaws and struggles.
-to be the voice that inspires, motivates, and transforms the millennial mindset and be the catalyst for the revolution that is going to take place for this generation.
Consider me your life-coach, motivator, and therapist all in one. I'm here for you.
