Rashida Greene

My name is Rashida Greene.  I was born and raised in Indianapolis.  Graduated from North Central High School c/o 2002.  I then went on to IUPUI where I obtained a BA in Psychology and minored in Creative Writing.  I have two children, and a plethora of guinea pigs (some of which I am definitely willing to part ways with to go to a loving home).  I started writing creatively while I was in the second grade thanks to program called "Young Authors".  From there my love of writing grew.  I have been a featured reader at college open mics. Some of my favorite poets include Tasha Jones, Sonia Sanchez, Terrance Hayes, Sylvia Plath, Amiri Baraka, and Ethridge Knight just to name a few.
