The Road Less Travelled

Written By: Jacqueline Kibacha—I was born in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and I’m the first born and only girl of 4 children. When I was 3 years old we left Tanzania and I've since lived in the Middle East and the UK. I enjoyed and was always really good at creative writing and art from a young age and that is what I chose to study. My teachers discovered I had a talent for acting and so I also studied to gain awards in speech and poetry presentation as well as performing in plays and musicals. I spent much of my university life, where I studied Fine Arts, involved with music, through organizing events, being a lead vocalist in a band and joining various choirs. It was whilst preparing for my final year Art Show and recording with DJs that I began to experiment with sounds and words in the form of poetry. I was given the name Pretty Poet in 2005 and took my poetry to a new dimension. Read about My Journey To Becoming A Voice For The Voiceless.
