Ms. Hybrid (A.K.A) Tybie P. O’Bard
Ms. Hybrid is a California Native born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. She fell in love with the way words connected at an early age when her mother would read Dr. Seuss books like “Go Dog Go”. The way words connected were magic for her. The first time she wrote a poem was in the third grade her father who was a Vietnam veteran stayed up late with her working on the poem. When the teacher returned the poem she wrote on the paper that Ms. Hybrid had copy the poem from a book and that it was not her original work, her father was furious and advise the teacher to allow her to write a poem in class. The teacher agreed and again was shocked at the results. Ms. Hybrid has been writing poetry ever since.
