Natachi Mez said this about her poetry:
For me, performing poetry is rejuvenating. I create interactive sets that seek to deepen audience engagement and celebrate the audience’s voice, blurring the lines between performer and spectator. Additionally, I have worked with youth communities, and people who are incarcerated, to engage writing and rapping as a tool of empowerment, interaction, and introspection. As a computer science major, I seek to combine technology and my passion from storytelling and writing to engage with interactive media.
