Unapologetically wear my scars and share my vulnerabilities and their dynamics in my writing, performance art and activism. All my undertakings bring me a lot of joy and pride as well as foster effective dialogues, healing and empowerment in the lives of my audiences and communities.
I’m ever open to trying new things, performing in new languages, moderating & hosting in new venues, teaching or traveling short-term for the right projects.
If you would like to collaborate I welcome you to contact me, and look forward to hearing from you.”
