Come see Britta B perform at the 2nd annual White Ribbon Conference at Ryerson University!

Britta “Britta B.” Badour is a fearless young woman and poet now residing in Toronto, Canada. Writing poetry ever since she learned to spell her name, Britta believes that sharing her art is the best way to be honest and informative about the issues she is most passionate about. When she was younger, Britta found herself trapped without a voice to speak out against the troubles she was facing both at home and at school. She expresses herself through poetry, hoping to be the role model she never had growing up.

Britta has travelled across North America as a keynote motivational speaker, speaking to thousands of people about the power of how “using your voice can change the world.” In 2010, she spent the summer building a school in Kenya, Africa. Most recently, Britta featured at the Nuyorican Cafe, in New York City, as a showcase opener for HBO’s Def Poetry superstar Carlos Andrés Gómez. This May, she will be featured in her first headliner at Mike Geffner’s Inspired Word showcase, in Manhattan, New York.

She is a leader, youth activist, and a woman with words.
