THE BRONX - Angelica Rosa defied the odds and used her Bronx upbringing as inspiration for two poetry books that were recently published.

Rosa says she knew tough times growing up in low income housing in the 1980s, but her family never let her give up and taught her to appreciate the struggles of others.

Rosa says she finds inspiration in what she calls the beauty of The Bronx and also in her spirituality.
