Juliet still

Join us when Juliet Lubwama, National Student Poet for the Northeast, will introduce herself and read original works, lead participants in an hour-long poetry workshop, and conclude the event with participants sharing their work.

As the daughter of Ugandan immigrants, Juliet’s poetry often revolves around family, heritage, and finding one’s identity. She believes poems can build bridges between cultures, beliefs, and people, helping them empathize with each other. While Juliet hopes one day to be a neurologist, she has found ways to surround herself with words in every aspect of her life, whether she is writing, singing, or speaking. She is passionate about mental illness advocacy and is captain of her school’s speech and debate team, where she performs oral interpretations of poetry and prose. Juliet is a senior at Downingtown STEM Academy in Downingtown, PA.
