Meg Smith performs an original poem about why she writes, then talks about what went into creating that poem.

Meg is a junior at the University of Tulsa studying the Biological Sciences and French. Though she aspires to a career in pediatric medicine, Meg spends much of her free time writing. Ever since she wrote her first poem six years ago, she has been captivated by the powerful art of expression that lies within both written and spoken poetry. Meg’s work has been featured in Stylus, TU’s student literary journal, and she is thrilled to perform at TEDxUniversityofTulsa for the second year in a row!
