Yesika Salgado has made a name for herself sharing raw, vulnerable poetry about her love life and growing up as a self-described “fat brown woman” in Los Angeles. Her first book, Corazón, was published last year to much acclaim.

In this segment of “How I Made It,” Salgado dissects “What I Know,” a poem from her book about family, love and loss, and the city she calls home: Los Angeles.
