Once upon a time, a little girl with chubby hands and curly black hair, journeyed across many lands with one hand in her mother’s and one in her father’s. They found peace, laughter, rain clouds, and ocean breezes. They carved themselves a home and gathered many with love.
A degree in International Relations and one in Teaching have given this girl much to think about. A passion for the written word and music have given her much to dream about.
Sareh is currently working on her first book of poems telling the gripping story of her family’s escape from Iran and immigration to Canada. She has published poems in The Elephant Journal, The Grilled Cheese Magazine, and most recently SFU’s The Writer’s Studio Anthology: Emerge18. She has read her poems at Spiel reading series and The New Dominion reading series, and performed in poetry slams at The Brickhouse poetry slam and reading series.
Using her experience and insights as an educator, Sareh is co-founder of 365give, a social emotional learning program for children to help them learn the power of giving, a program that is being used in over 42 schools across the world.
May we all enjoy working with that which brings us alive- that which fulfills our soul’s purpose.
Poetry pumps blood to my heart, and makes magic out of the mundane.
May your mundane be magical and your heart pumping proudly with poetry.
