Zaynab Mohammed

Award-Winning Performance Poet


"I am Iraqi, Lebanese and Palestinian. The countries my parents grew up in, the cultures my family carries, the language of my grandmothers, the smell of tea and the taste of sweets, are what root me in my being. I pay homage to my ancestors, that carry my heavy heart, as I weave stories and poems to share with the world."
