Safiya's first poetry collection forthcoming w/
Out-Spoken Press funded by Arts Council England
'I'm using movement to excavate the voices of my ancestors and share what's happening in my community. I am writing what I needed and I believe my "disabilities" (which I call abilities) have given me a unique advantage regarding my practice. I haven't always felt heard, I'm naturally shy, so I feel blessed to have found a way to communicate which leaves me empowered.'
