Hi, I'm Sharmay!
I live in London, obsess over ripe soursop, collect lavender in my pockets, I write and occasionally, I narrate cat brawls.
After writing a poem a day into my phone for several years, I stopped living the life of a procrastinating perfectionist and self-published my self-illustrated debut poetry collection, be the Uplifter an empowering, inspiring and motivating book of positive poems.
I'm currently writing several other books that I can't wait to share with the world.
I performed my poem, "Dino Superstars" in the UK season 2, episode 5, open mic slot of Life & Rhymes on the Sky Arts channel.
I performed a poem about London's Notting Hill Carnival at the Royal Albert Hall for the 2020 virtual carnival event.
STOP MOTION FILMMAKER
