Hanan Issa

Writer, spoken word artist, poet.

Hanan Issa is a bi-racial (Welsh and Iraqi) on-the-fence Feminist Muslim woman in a hijab. She's a spoken word artist and poet and, more than anything, just curious about the human experience.
She graduated with a BA (Hon) in English Literature and has worked in a range of charity organisations supporting people who are deaf, black and ethnic minorities, as well as struggling with mental health issues.
She has performed spoken word at a number of events including the Women of the World festival.
Most of her work surrounds the female muslim experience and she hopes her work and words will help bring humanity closer together.
