Roc was invited to perform at the DST Kwanzaa Celebration in Mesa on Saturday, December 16, 2017. She was tasked with creating a spoken word piece that utilized the Kwanzaa principle, Umoja-Unity and wrote the spoken word piece "She Is." If you read Rough Edges, this should be familiar. Roc is thankful to DST for the invitation and the opportunity to be apart of such an amazing event. The event was so successful, it was published in the Arizona Informant.
