    PhD Project

    My PhD project explores identity in Indian English Poetry from Nobel Prize Winner Rabindranath Tagore to Instagram Poet Rupi Kaur. It is half creative and half critical, in th creative aspect of my PhD I have created a poetry collection that showcases my own journey of identity as well as my families who first came to the U.K. from Kenya in the 1970s. Within the poetry collection there are photographs that narrate the poems and the stories being told.

    Master's Project

    2020-2021 - Universty of Leicester

    My MA was in Modern Literature and Creative Writing whereby my end project/dissertation was a creative piece that centered around Instagram Poetry with the title: Understanding The Rise and Influence of Instagram Poetry In The Contemporary Literary World. For this project, I wrote my own collection of poems that took inspiration both in theme and layout from Instagram Poetry. Along with this I did a Reflective Commentary that discussed the controversiality of Instagram Poetry, including the rise of it, the lack of academic research on the genre & also how it has evolved and come to be in creating a new poetry renaissance.
