Esther was born in 93′ in Berlin. When she was eight years old her and her family moved to Mombasa, following the death of my mother.
She has been writing poetry and short stories since the age of nine, it was a way for her to cope with the loss and trauma. Writing came to her as a means of perception, and as a tool to communicate with her environment and with herself.
She however, went to a school in Mombasa that did not encourage creative writing at the secondary school level. She graduated this year with a degree in economics.
However, writing and telling stories has always played a big role in her life, and she will be persuing a creative writing undergraduate diploma this September.
As of last year, she started performing her poetry at different events here in Berlin. And is currently the artist in residence for the British Council Germany.
Besides writing Esther loves to cook, make lotions and feel good portions and elixers!
