Aiden Harmitt-Williams

Writer, Poet, Photographer

As a black man, one phrase has been engrained into my head since childhood. "You must work twice as hard as them to get half of what they have." So by that statement, I have to put in work. While ups and downs have kept me from seeing what I could achieve in recent years, I'm gaining clarity and an appreciation for what I do, and while I can always do better in every aspect... right now I know that I'm good.
