Growing up a shy young lady, Caneeka Miller has been writing poetry since the tender age of eleven after finding a Paul Laurence Dunbar book in her aunt’s attic. From that moment poetry became more than a hobby but a way of life. Those that know Caneeka have witnessed her write words that would later form a poem on napkins, sticky notes, on her hand, on the wall of the shower; anywhere she could make words so that she wouldn’t forget them. She has published a few poems throughout grade and high school but never a compilation of poetry into book form. Receiving a Bachelor of Science in Human Development with a concentration in Family Studies from the University of Alabama, Caneeka has always had the desire to make an impact on families whether through activism or through the written world. Caneeka hopes to help the younger generation discover their hidden voices so that they can change the world: One word at a time.
