Sara Abou Rashid’s Biography:
Sara Abou Rashed is a poet, speaker, and community-lover; a Palestinian born and raised in Syria.
In 2013, she moved with her family to Columbus, Ohio due to the war – and that’s when she started writing poetry in English. Sara has won the Columbus City Poetry Slam twice in a row. Her art and poetry have been awarded many times and her works appeared in over ten anthologies. Some of Sara’s accolades include giving a TEDx Talk, getting nominated for a Pushcart Prize at 16, and performing at the Tenement Museum of New York.

Sara aspires to work in public policy and foster dialogue on political art; she attends Denison University, pursuing a degree in International Studies and Narrative Non-fiction.
