Poet; Visual Artist; Writer
Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee. Vee is from Cleveland, Ohio a mother of 2, poet, author, writer, motivational speaker, and community activist. Many refer to her as a free spirit which she views as a compliment because she feels to love and be loved is one of the greatest feelings a person can have and give.
Vee has always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener due to her severe childhood skin issues that plagued her until approximately 19 which helped her see people differently than others because many refuse to look past aesthetics to see the true person. Looking beyond the surface was/is her specialty because many make assumptions based on appearance unaware that some things are beyond a person’s control. She quickly learned that some of the ugliest people are packaged very well. Her empathetic feelings towards others also caused her to look within herself for answers that many had no answers for or did not want to address.
