About The Speaker and Poet

Poet  The-Xtra

Traci Neal was born on March 8, 1989. She grew up in Hopkins, SC. Traci discovers she has a gift of poetry at 14, after writing it in 7th grade. Her 7th-grade teacher, from Hopkins Middle School, told the class to write a poetry book. Traci fell in love with poetry through this class assignment. She saw it as an outlet from bullying and low-self esteem. Her passion for public speaking came later on in life. Ten years later, actually!

Traci did not see writing as a "stable career". She kept trying to become an elementary school teacher. She fails the Praxis II Exam 10 times. Traci feels like a total failure. God had a different plan though. Through spiritual guidance of character development at her church, Word of God Church and Ministries International with Bishop Eric W. Davis, Traci became a better woman of God.

Now, she wants to share her life lessons in her book series to help inspire youth. The target readers are 3rd grade to high school. There are 9 more books to write. Traci believes Jesus is the better option! Everything else left her empty. She loves to tell people, "The world does not impress me!"


Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

 Proverbs 3:5-6
