Published Work

I was introduced to poetry via slam, traveling to three national team competitions. My teams placed fifth at Brave News Voices 2014, and were awarded "Best Writing" at CUPSI 2015. Winning the title of 2015 UT-Austin slam champ, I have been featured across Texas and the US. I now focus on written work, addressing race, Arab identity, diaspora, and ancestry.
