Far Away responds to the reality of black experiences of entrapment and what freedom might look like in different spaces and journeys.

 

Her Silence is a published poet that rose from the trauma of complacency. I chose Her Silence as my poet’s name because her voice speaks from a need of catharsis in our unstable communities. I am a prolific artist, poet, singer, writer, and overall creative who centers healing and Sickle Cell advocacy within my differing creative mediums. My experiences as a Nigerian first-daughter fuel my art, which has been instrumental to my growth as a creative. Catharsis is my artist tag and my art business is Healing Through Artistic Mediums. Through my holistic mediums, my goal is to highlight the importance of intentional healing work through artistic expression for the advocacy and autonomy of adult mental health and individuals with Sickle Cell.
