RAFFAELLA CIAVATTA is a performer and spoken word artist based in NY. She blogs at http://ineuphorictrance.blogspot.com/. Raffaella Ciavatta found in poetry the cathartic form of expression of her duality and intensity. She was born in Brazil and lived there until she decided to cover her whole back with angel wings and fly to New York, where she always wanted to live. Like she said, pretty intense!
