Author, activist, and inspirational speaker
Najwa Zebian is on a mission to empower people to build a home within themselves—to live, love, and create fearlessly. Her first students, a group of young refugees, led her back to her foundational passion: writing. By writing to heal her students, Najwa began to heal her sixteen-year-old self.
Since publishing her first collection of poetry and prose in 2016, Najwa has become an inspiration to millions of people worldwide. Bravely sharing her experiences of displacement, discrimination, and abuse, Najwa is known for her best-selling poetry and stirring, widely-viewed speaking engagements.
