About Crissy Q: Crissy recently moved to Texas from Upstate, NY and has since been heavily involved in the theater and art communities throughout San Antonio. Her experiences growing up and her professional work with young adults, adolescents, and children have lent themselves to her passion for social reflection and cultural analysis. It was this thinking that prompted her to writing and publishing her first book, Call Us College Ready. In her book, she sought to candidly discuss the realities that face youth in America today through personal narrative, poetic interpretation, and prose commentary.
About Call Us College Ready: This narrative is a poetry and prose description of the life of a low-income child and her journey through foster care to become a first generation college student. Taken from the author's personal experience, this was written as a window of insight for professionals who work with disadvantaged youth, and for the support and motivation of those young adults themselves.
