"Work, eat, sleep, repeat - the average 21st-century routine." One of Taz’s biggest fears is to settle for the life handed to you and submit to merely existing instead of truly living. While trying to find her way in life, she discovered her passion for spoken word poetry. She shares her journey of leaving behind the safe and stable path and taking the daring step to pursue her dreams and passion. Take a look, it’s very poetic!
About Taz Alam
Taz Alam graduated with a law degree from Cardiff University in 2015. After graduating she went through a period of feeling lost and it was during this difficult time that she discovered her love for spoken word poetry. She was particularly drawn to how spoken word is an impactful way of expressing powerful messages, and how it gave her a voice at a time where she felt the most helpless. Taz started posting videos online talking about difficult topics ranging from mental health, social issues, and body image, transforming them into empowering poems. She gradually grew her audience and now uses her platform to give a voice to vulnerable people.
