Sharnay Mkhayber attended her first slam at Diversity Fest at Western Sydney University in 2015, and was entranced by the way Iman Etri performed for the first time. She then ran home and penned her first spoken word poem. Since that amazing introduction, she has placed at both Bankstown Poetry Slam and Parramatta Poetry Slam, won the BPS Olympics and was voted people’s choice in the 2016 Grand Slam. She has worked in high schools facilitating poetry workshops such as Real Talk and Stand Tall Speak Out.
