“Oh wow, that was really impactful!”
“Nadia is so talented!”
“I thought it was a very touching and well written and read piece.”
“Just amazing that she could put something like that together.”
“Loved it, definitely tribute worthy and heart felt.”
It's been a while since I was asked to deliver a spoken word performance. Dusting off my poetry skills is something I rarely do, but given the circumstances, I was willing to make an exception. The UnderWriteMe organisation's inclusion and diversity team wanted to honour Stephen Lawrence Day in a way that was thought-provoking, impactful and gave their employees more than just a forgetful PowerPoint presentation.
Despite the nerves, the message in the poem shone through and feedback was better than I could have hoped for!
It was an honour to be included in such an important event.
