Zoya Ahmed is the Sonoma County Poet Laureate. She was not only a 2019 California Poetry Out Loud finalist, but she won the 2019 California’s Poetry Ourselves competition with her original poem “A Concerto of Spice”. With her passion for social justice, she also directed and performed in the 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Assembly at Maria Carrillo High School. Ahmed attempts to embrace her rich South Asian ancestorhood, and confront the minutiae of privilege and power, microaggressions, and the facade of the American Dream. She hopes that her poems give all those who are silenced, a voice.
