Britta “Britta B.” Badour, resides in Toronto, serving the community as a youth mentor and advocate for socially conscious living. She has toured with her poetry across North America, empowering thousands of people to recognize that the “power of your voice can change the world.” In 2010, she spent the summer facilitating a youth leadership trip in Kenya, where she found herself lost for words for the first time.
Britta began her career as a spoken word artist in 2011, with a solo trip to New York City. Since then, she has fascinated audiences with feature performances, opened for HBO Def Poetry superstars Carlos Andrés Gómez and Shihan, and earned a spot on the 2012 Toronto Poetry Slam team. Last Summer, she unveiled her first chapbook Oh, Britta and competed at the National Poetry Slam in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Most recently, Britta competed as a finalist at the 2012 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word (achieving 3rd place), she has released a second book of poetry called Speak, and she will also be a featured guest in Dwayne Morgan’s 2013 production of When Sisters Speak, earlier this year.
As a self-proclaimed thrill-seeker, she enjoys rainy bike rides, cooking in the dark and quiet conversations with the moon.
