Crabs in a bucket. They climb, hurt, and push down their own kind, merely because all they can think about is getting out of the bucket. There are bigger enemies in our world, yet we still decide to turn against, and pull one another down. We fight all these tiny, insignificant battles when the truth is, we have an entire war to worry about.

I’m Giscelle Wilbanks, I am a part of Word on the Street, and these are the types of things we want to change. Come together and help us show the world what real peace could look like. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 2000. I grew up in Uruguay and South Florida, and am currently living in Asheville, North Carolina. I am fluent in Spanish and English, but mainly Spanglish. With as many places that I’ve lived, and as many people as I’ve met, I feel like I’ve lived multiple lives. I grew up in a family consumed by anger, so my fondest childhood memory is conflict. I’ve come to Word on the Street to convince people that the world outside of our community is already so mean and ugly, we need to make peace in every space we can control.
