Writer - Performer - Activist
Born and raised between Nigeria and Austria, I grew up within a big circle of extended family and friends, where telling stories was an essential aspect of our everyday lives.
I fell in love with children's books at an early age on account of my mother being a teacher and soon after, aspired to be a writer myself.
With a bit over 17 and a stretch to 18 years, I stood on my first poetry slam stage and later became the two-time reigning Austrian U20 first-runner up in 2017 and 2018.
My poems tell of the experiences of being a black Christian woman in a predominantly white environment. They are performed in English, German and "D-english".
Autumn 2022, my first book and poetry collection will be published. Stay tuned for more information on how to order!
