Q&A with Mina West
What led you to start using your gift i.e. doing poetry?
Writing thoughts down was always my personal way of getting through situations, after getting the courage to share one of my pieces with my friends, she encouraged me to perform it as she felt it would help other people.
What inspires your spoken word?
Life events inspire my spoken word, relationships/situations/circumstances, wherever my spirit leads I write.
What’s next for Mina?
God willing, working towards being a full time spoken word artist. It’s what I love to do, it’s where I want to keep my focus.
