Steven T. Licardi is a New York State Licensed Social Worker, an author, spoken word poet, motivational speaker, actor, and activist. His current work attempts to meld rhyme scheme and free verse poetry together in ways that feel seamless, subtle, and resonating.
As a child, Steven was diagnosed with a Pervasive Developmental Disorder, an Autism Spectrum Disorder, which manifested as an inability to emotionally comprehend his own thoughts. Poetry and performance provided him with the language to understand himself and the world around him.
He now uses spoken word to fight for social justice and human rights around the world by modeling empathy and inviting dialogue among diverse audiences. www.TheSvenBo.co
