“We are a group of youth talented and gifted to use the word as a way of bringing positive change in all sectors of life. We also want to make sure that all poets are given a platform to use their talent effectively,” said Miss Nakiria.

Much more, these talented youths have gone ahead to organised a poetry fanfare where all poets will meet to show their talent and talk about various issues.

“Through our poetry  fanfare, we want to add some fun like music as we bring forward our messages to our audience so that we bring positive change . Our fanfare will be held on 27th October, 2018 at Kwenu Juice and Salad Bar  at a fee of UGX 15,000 and everyone is welcome because we aim at sending our positive impact to everyone,” Nakiria added.
