Najiba Abdellaoui

Poet, Writer & Communications Professional

Najiba Abdellaoui is a Moroccan-Dutch poet, writer and communications professional. It was hip-hop that first inspired her to explore her voice as a writer. This led to many stories, national and international spoken word performances and workshops where she encourages youngsters to unravel the stories they carry within them. The power of self-expression and what it can do for young people’s sense of identity, self-confidence and emancipation continues to amaze and motivate her to explore the world of storytelling further.
