Loud Colors and Vibrant Voices

Poetic Ramblings alumnus, Sidra Afzal, gave an inspiring TedXYouth talk last spring and we think everyone should watch it. Sidra is a poet with impact. She works to empower others through her poetry and her actions. We are so proud to have worked with her and we can’t wait to see what she does next.

Check out her TedXYouth Talk below.

Here she is performing her poem “One Body Three Struggles” at one of the LTAB MA Youth Slam Preliminary bouts last April .

In addition to being a great slam poet, Sidra also writes and illustrates short poems to publish. Here she is talking to BCAT about her debut collection, Wildflowers.

If you want to read more of Sidra’s work, you’re in luck. She published her second collection, A Beautiful Tragedy this past summer. Exciting!!
