Jefferson Thomas: Portrait Taking as an Art

So who is Jefferson Thomas? “I am 16, I live in DC, and have now lived here for two years as a military kid and several other places before. I’m currently taking Advanced Composition, Pre Calculus Honors, and Physics Honors.”

And then, because I’m a big doof, I accidentally asked him why he liked to write poetry (Writing poetry? Where in the world did that come from?)

Jefferson said, “Poetry for me is just another form of self-expression, so I find it calming and a way to resolve my thoughts.”
