About Me

I am a Berlin based  poet, speaker, social pedagogue, educator, and empowerment worker. A lover of light, life, and the right kinds of shadows. I have been performing at international poetry events, academic conferences, and political events for more than 10 years. In my seminars and workshops, I talk about topics ranging from poetry and politics to gendered racism, orientalism, and intersectionality.

„My position is that serious and good art has always existed to help, to serve, humanity.“
Chinua Achebe

Work

My goal is to encourage myself and others to reflect on and to feel deeply around intersecting issues that concern the humanity of us all. To question and try to change the things that oppressive societies taught all of us to view as normal.

Poetry
POETRY

My writing has brought me to stages all over Europe. At festivals, poetry events, academic conferences, and political events. My writings have been published in various formats such as print and digital. Pieces appeared in Freitext Magazin, as part of larger international cooperations, and on the latest Oury-Jalloh-Soli-Sampler. 

EDUUUUU
EDUCATION

As an educator I attend panels, talks, seminars, and workshops to talk about topics ranging from poetry and politics to gendered racism, orientalism, and intersectionality. I have presented my work nationally and internationally. Furthermore, I co-authored an essay for the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung’s „Empowerment Dossier“.

Empowertment
EMPOWERMENT

Combining approaches of biography work, physical movement, theatre, and creative writing, I organize, conceptualize, and facilitate both empowerment and writing workshops. Amongst others, I have collaborated with Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund (DGB), Antidiskriminierungsnetzwerk Berlin (ADNB), Türkischer Bund in Berlin e.V. (TBB)., Gangway e.V., Akademie Remscheid, and various festivals, such as LaDIY*-Festivals all over Germany.
