You can never see yourself as the world does. No matter how many mirrors you look into, you won't see what everyone else does. Beyond Face Value is not just a lesson Rajée had to learn, but it is an ethos she now lives her life by. Have you ever believed you were destined for a path that was totally different from where you started, or felt that life was directing you against the normal, the expected and the accepted, and that every challenge you faced was due to a higher power guiding you to a greater place? Rajée's story is both inspiring and devastating in equal measure.

My first collection of poetry entitled “If There’s No Heaven” was the winner of the 2020 Poetry Is Life Book Award and was published in May by Poetry Is Life Publishing. The poems in the book are largely autobiographical and chronicle the first two years of my life living as the woman I now know I was always meant to be. I bring a unique perspective, since I did not transition until I was sixty-three years old after repressing my true gender identity for over sixty years. The poetry is raw, accessible, and authentic and displays my strength, honesty, vulnerability, hope, and triumph at finally leaving as my true self. It is only available for purchase through the publisher.
