Miss Moses is:

* Woman of God-A follower of Christ, walking in the power of the Holy Spirit.

* Poet-An artist in verse. Whether through traditional poetry, spoken word, or the palette of the microphone, she weaves tapestries of lyric.

* Bridge-From captivity to freedom, ignorance to knowledge, despair to hope, death to God.

Originally from small-town Missouri, Miss Moses rose above the farmland and rodeo culture to become a lover of hip-hop from an early age. Also a young poet, she began to channel her creative energy into verse and had her first stage performance at age 12, before a crowd of elderly Presbyterians. Despite the minimal head-bobbing, she was encouraged and continued to perfect the gift.

Miss Moses has experienced the pain of sin and the grace of Christ. Her parents divorced when she was just a baby, and she dealt with the painful effects of a broken home. She received Christ at Sunday school at age 8, and later saw her mother rededicate her life to the Lord after the death of Miss Mo’s little sister Beth. Despite her several years of teenage rebellion (and the pain it caused), Miss Moses is striving to fulfill her calling and is completely in love with God. She recently graduted from Vanguard University of Southern California with a sociology degree, and is currently pursuing her MA at the University of Florida.

Currently, she has found her passions in God, hip-hop, poetry and people. Mo’ is a former member of Known Emissaries and is currently part of Urban Lyricists, an urban poetry collective. She is pursuing a career in justice reform, particularly in the area of wrongful convictions, the death penalty, and domestic violence (batteed women who kill). She also has an intense burden for racial reconciliation, having grown up in clear sight of rampant prejudice, but with the touch of Christ on her life. He has called her to be a bridge.
