Huda the Goddess is the current Australian Poetry Slam Champion and two-time QLD champ. Huda is a spoken word poet, educator, mental health advocate, dancer and workshop facilitator. She describes poetry as one of her senses that allows her to turn her experiences into art and is currently working on her first poetry collection. As a proud African-Muslim woman it is important to her that young women from her community are represented and their stories are shared. Poetry is her connection to communities, land and her people. Having the chance to make people feel something will always be her goal as an artist.
She is currently working on her first book, ‘The Birth of Goddess’ a poetry collection inspired by her lived experience. It talks about relationships, family, self-discovery, mental health and social issues that have affected her life. Being a black, Muslim, woman, and immigrant it’s all in the book.
