Author's Bio

Saroya Marsh is a graduate of Iona college in New Rochelle, NY. She works as a preschool teacher and youth mentor, but has always had a passion for writing. As a spoken word poet she brings a heartfelt intensity and deep beliefs to the stage, brandishing a saber of light that will penetrate those dark pockets of prejudice, injustice, and hurt, that lay buried deep within each of us.

Saroya Marsh started writing poetry at age 9. Pouring her heart into every piece, Saroya has grown into a passionate young poetess. Penning poems for the weak at heart,she reaches out to the young child who is looking to find her/his own, but needs a bit of encouragement. With writings ranging from love, lost and found, to hope and despair, Saroya has hopes that her poems will spark a mind of change.

"If you want to leave an impact deep enough for future generations to see...start now."-SM
