"For years, Valéry thought that if she tried harder she could be better, different… normal. In Through, her debut poetry collection, she rises above what is normal and illuminates what is human.


As a public speaker and advocate, her work centres very much around mental health, and poetry is a creative outlet through which she shares her story of mental illness and recovery.


The ultimate message of Through is one of hope, though she does not shy away from the real and the raw. Her poems aim to help people connect and feel less alone, as well as to dismantle the shame and stigma that comes with mental illness."


An anthology of personal essays to which I contributed chapter 20
