speaking words

Eshmit began writing and performing spoken word pieces inspired by her heritage and her Faith four years ago. She introduced herself as a spoken word artist on social media platforms, which led to her performing across the country in venues such as The Arts Theatre, West End; Parliament; Trafalgar Square and eventually made her mark in Vancouver, BC in 2016. She uses spoken word to challenge social injustice and to promote, encourage and empower listeners.
