Meet Azure. A poet, creative, entrepreneur, author and public speaker, this woman has lived the past 12 months with transparency and grace. After being surged into spotlight following her discovery by Former First Lady, Maria Shriver and Oprah, Azure has remained in the public eye working as a commissioned poet and public speaker. Despite her brilliant success, the harrows of life and heartbreak are no stranger to Azure, and 2016 saw her existing in a space of vulnerability and bravery— putting her entire life on hold to rebuild her heart. Admitting imperfection and always leaving room for growth is something that many of us struggle to do— especially on such a platform as social media-- but Azure continues her tireless pursuit of honesty in a world of manicured authenticity. Her focus for 2017 is to find contentment over being happy, and her newfound venture as half of Spare Pages is a beautiful reflection of her persistence, creativity and love of love. She is a Strong Woman.
