About the hosts

Damneet Kaur//

Damneet Kaur is a writer and poet based in California. Moving to the United States from Punjab, India at a young age and growing up in the community of San Diego, CA, Damneet connects her childhood experiences to her writing. She values and dedicates her time to the community that has raised her. As a first generation, low-income woman of color, Kaur finds it important to nurture the growth of our youth.

For her, poetry is one of the truest and most ancient forms in which people are able to tell their stories, validate their experiences and find solidarity amongst each other. Intersecting her Punjabi culture into the Latinx community she was raised in, she hopes to create bridges that will empower women of color.

Jasmin Kaur//

Jasmin Kaur is a writer, illustrator and spoken word artist living on unceded Sto:lo territory. Her writing, which explores otherness, decolonization and the beauty of resistance, acts as a means of healing and reclaiming identity. As a creative writing facilitator and teacher, Jasmin has been facilitating artistic workshops for young people for the last several years. Currently working on her debut poetry collection, her poetry and articles have been published in Harper's Bazaar India, NR Magazine, KaurLife Magazine and the Sikh Formations Journal.
