Kerri Lowe is a millennial feminist spoken word poet, storyteller, and creative facilitator who writes and performs under the name KAYLO. More than just a nickname, KAYLO stands for Keep All Young Loves Open – and serves as a reminder to be the brave, outspoken girl she was when she was young. A girl with gumption. KAYLO performs spoken word poetry and talks openly about her history of eating disorders and sexual assault, with the hope of giving a voice to all of those women who are silenced in their suffering.
