Hello, Igho Diana here; a spoken word poet, community educator, and mastermind of Ebony Girls Obsession.
I wholeheartedly believe that it takes a village—not only to raise a child but also to support adults through our healing and wellness journey. So I create communities of/for folks who invest in themselves and each other’s wellbeing, through storytelling and communal learning experiences. Particularly, I support Black women and youth in prioritizing self-care, so that they are better able to show up for, and receive the support of their respective communities. I do this by way of mentorship, workshops, events, retreats, and community activations.
In addition to all of the above, I am a 3rd year Community Development student at Humber College. I have been a spoken word artist for 10 years now; having been on the Vancouver Poetry Slam team in 2010, and performed at literary festivals, events, and schools across North America. To date I have facilitated over 150 workshops on creative writing and self-care in collaboration with organizations like VIBE Arts, ArtStarts, St. Stephen’s Community House, ArtReach, the Gardiner Museum, and Humber College. Currently, I co-host a weekly creative writing and performance workshop, called Speak BLAC, at Humber College.
My proudest accomplishments include an appearance in the Toronto Star for my unique fashion sense; an award for consistently advocating for marginalized folks; and maintaining a 90%+ GPA while doing all the things. You can catch me storytellin’ on social media @ighodiana / @EGOInitiative
