What If We Give Mental Illness a Microphone? | Kaitlinn Estevez | TEDxAdelphiUniversity

Kaitlinn Estevez is passionate about poetry and literature, and she can frequently be found performing spoken word poetry at open mic nights throughout New York City, or at Adelphi University, where she is a senior majoring in English. Her work has been published in Zaum Press, GirlSense and Nonsense Magazine, East Coast Ink and The Mighty.

Local outreach has been at the center of Estevez’s career. She has worked with ministry, nonprofits, New York City Deptartment of Education, and had volunteered for UNICEF, homeless organizations and youth programs in the Metro New York area. Her goal is to integrate local missions and outreach with her creative writing work.

Global missions are also a passion for Estevez. She has traveled to Costa Rica to serve with 6:8 Missions in poor communities and to Uganda with African Dream Initiative to work with children. She hopes to continue partnering with organizations such as these and incorporate missionary work into her career.
