I was delighted to participate in Beyond the Challenge: Uniting for Wellness! an event organised by Building Lives Together, in collaboration with partner organisations Ashiana Community Project, Highfield Hall, and Zavieh Trust to raise awareness and provide support for those affected by long COVID which took place in Birmingham on 10th February 2024.
You can see the performance and hear my reading of this poem in the YouTube video of the performance.
"So let us gather, hearts open, as one,
To witness stories untold, yet not undone.
For in our artistry, a testament we claim,
Long COVID may scar, but it cannot break our flame.”
