My name Shaniqua Harris, I live and study Creative Writing in London. My childhood was spent telling stories both true and fictitious to entertain myself and others and when I was ten I wrote my first poem. I performed it several times for various family members and the nicely written out (in my best handwriting) copy is stuck to my bedroom door. A month ago, I started performing my poetry in Central London for the first time since that first poem. It is terrifying and exhilarating and I hope to keep doing it forever.
