Sabrine, 23 years old, living in London, currently studying psychology at university, blogger and poet.
What does poetry mean to you?
Poetry is my safe place and my happy place. Whenever I feel like I need to vent or have something to express without knowing what to say, writing poetry is always the way to go for me.
What inspires your poetry?
My poetry is predominantly focused on my life experiences, emotions, thoughts and feelings all centred around mental health and how I see the world.
Which are most important to you: (1) joy, (2) peace, (3) patience, (4) kindness, (5) self-control, (6) faithfulness, (7) gentleness, (8) love, or (9) goodness? If you can, explain why.
I think all of these ideas are important but I think love is the most important as it encompasses many of the other positive emotions listed and it’s so incredibly necessary and vital that we show love and receive love in our lives.
What sort of things are you looking forward to improving this year?
Well it’s nearing the end of the year, but I’m hoping to improve my writing practice and try to set myself some kind of schedule to write more frequently.
What is one big dream you have?
I dream of one day becoming a clinical psychologist and helping others who have been in similar positions in life as I have. And I am so grateful and excited that I’m on my way to making this dream a reality.
