As an artist who moves her audience with her spoken-word poems, Louise talks about honesty: coming to terms with different truths, and braving to have an honest conversation with oneself. Instead of being inspiring, she dares us to be authentic with our stories. She sealed her talk with her moving piece, "Pindrop Silence".

Louise Meets is a spoken word artist under Words Anonymous, a freelance content writer, and proofreader. She has been featured as a writer and performer in various events, including one that was organized by the UN Women. Through her poetry, she aims to spread the word and raise awareness on gender equality, LGBT rights, mental illness, and body positivity. She wants to know you are loved.
