Wed Mahmoud Shalan

Wed Mahmoud is a grade 12 student poet from Al Khaleej National School. 

A humble 18-year- old Palestinian, an aesthete, nature lover and a literature enthusiast, she was always mesmerized by the English language and how you can display beauty through a simple string of words. 

Her source of inspiration is how poetry and literature and how they can gracefully convey emotions. She writes poetry for the sake of sharing her passion and expressing her sentiments. 

Wed has found poetry to be the only way in which she is able to speak about her feelings, and by sharing it she always hopes that she has spoken for everyone that shares her perspectives.
