Quote from Belise Nishimwe, "May Be Awkward, but It Has to Be Said," Many Roads to Here Podcast

In June of 2021, I met with Belise Nishimwe, the 2019 Oregon Poetry Out Loud Champion to learn about her journey from a Tanzania refugee camp to the mainstage as a spoken word poet in the U.S.

Hear her tell her story on Many Roads to Here.




Hey there,
