About The Author

Rani Rivera

In her brief life, Rani Rivera (1981-2016) experienced moments of darkness and light. She worked among the marginalized in two of the neediest neighbourhoods in Toronto: first, at St. Jamestown, where she organized after-school activities for children and youth, and later, at the Community Place Hub in the Weston and Mount Denis area. She enrolled in the English Program of the University of Toronto on a bridging scholarship. Her poetry collection, All Violet, was published by Caitlin Press (Dagger Editions) in 2017.
