Afra Atiq

Afra Atiq is an Emirati award-winning poet, and is the first spoken word artist to win the ADMAF Creativity Award.

She proudly gives back to her community through mentorships and workshops with Untitled Chapters (a thriving hub for Emirati women writers).

She has been a featured performer/speaker at platforms such as TEDxFujairah, Step Music Festival, and NYUAD Arts Center.

Afra was named Best Performer for 2015-16 by Rooftop Rhythms and has won multiple poetry slams and competitions.

She holds a master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomacy, and is pursuing a PhD at UAE University — however, performing poetry takes center stage in her life.
