BIOS

My name is Noah Humphrey but I go by the stage name Knowa-Know. My pronouns are he-series. I am in a Masters of Divinity Program at Yale but I’m studying remotely until the spring of next year. I recently graduated from Whittier College with a BA in Religious Studies and a minor in Holistic Care. Currently, I’m based in Oahu, Hawaii, but I use poetry as my second voice and I try to infuse my experiences in South Central; my African-American heritage; Neo spirituality, nature; and holistic elements into them. I let my soul speak through poetry and I believe that with peace, passion, patience, support, and God, anything is possible through this path we call life.

Hi, my name is Ahmad Selim Aboagye Xallen. I use he/him pronouns. I love plants, cooking, and dancing. I’m learning medicine, how to use a bow and arrow, and how to better love the parts of myself that I’m embarrassed about. My Instagram is @AxAboagye.

My name is Deysha Childs. I am an aspiring renaissance woman. I would love to categorize myself as an astrophysicist, but I love so much more than that. Although, that is my preferred field of study. For now, I model and work as a waitress. I hope you enjoy my poetry. I will be releasing a short poetry novel titled “Take a Dip” in February 2021.
