A bit about them:

Sydellia Ndiaye is an internationally recognized, veteran, spoken word artist who received her start in what is considered to be home to some of the world’s best slam poets, Chicago. The Senegalese-American artist has been blessed to touch souls all over the world by performing her spoken word in North America, Europe and Africa.

Sydellia has also competed in several competitions throughout her career. She was one of the top 8 finalists in the “RISE AND FLOW” Emerging Artist Competition 2020 organized by R.I.S.E Edutainment and the winner of the April 2020 Toronto Poetry Slam put on by one of the largest poetry organizations in Toronto.
