Derick is Baltimore's former, and first-ever Youth Poet Laureate. He has recently published his first poetry book entitled, Black Boy Archaeologist, exploring the boundaries of bi-racial identity, self-awareness, and young heartache, all while trying to make sense of the world around him. Derick has had his poems published in American Short Fiction, the Baltimore Magazine, as well as, the Poetry Society of America. He was named Baltimore's 2015 Rising Star. Despite the accolades, Derick believes his greatest accomplishment are the moments when he can just be himself, an achievement he hopes everyone has the opportunity of feeling"
