My name is La Shawna Griffith and I am a Barbadian Poet/Student and Performer. I am a final year student at the University Of The West Indies studying my BSC in Political Science Special. I am a poetry enthusiast and I am the proud author of my first ever publication of poetry entitled La Shawna- Unlock The Door available on Amazon and Kindle. Launching my book has led me to defy the odds, as I am one of the youngest published poets here in Barbados at the age of 21. My role model and idol in terms of poetry is Miss Maya Angelou. I love her poem, “I Know Why the Caged Birds Sing.” I aspire to become a literary legend just like she did. My goal is to be a voice to the voiceless and a hope and an inspiration to all that read my work.
