Radical Joy and Sisterhood: How the Sauti ya Dada Girls Find Their Voices

To Whom They Have Turned Me Into

A Poem by a Sauti ya Dada Mentee


If you meet my mentors

Tell them I am now strong

Tell them I am on my feet

Tell them I am now the girl

They molded me to


If you meet my mentors

Especially Nadia Sarah

Tell her I love her so

Tell her I never had the courage

To hug tight and never let her out of my life

If you meet my mentors tell them what I have learned

To fight back like the wonder woman

They taught me to be

Tell them that I have learned to be passionate

The same way they are to me

If you meet my mentors tell them I miss their hugs

The girl talk
