is a Jamaican-Canadian performance poet and 2018 Canadian National Champion.

Her writing is rooted in her lived experiences as immigrant & young mother. She began exploring performance poetry in 2008 & since then she has shared her stories in classrooms & boardrooms across Ontario. She sat as captain of the Toronto Poetry Slam team who were semi-finalists at the National Poetry Slam in Chicago and won the national championship in Guelph, Ontario. Most recently she was crowned the 2021 Toronto Grand Slam Champion. 

 

She continues to write the stories that are always the most difficult to hear and has made it her mission to make her authentic voice come through in her poetry.  As an arts educator and mentor, she takes pride in helping others find and become their true selves, no matter what or who may try to tell you differently.
