Kyriah Martinez is a proud product of Tunapuna Secondary School, where she spent most lunchtimes devouring whole books in the library. Her love for words pushed her into joining an online writing community, where she entered her first spoken word competition and promptly fell in love with the genre. She is now a member of the 2 Cents’ Movement We Write club. When she isn’t reading an ungodly amount of fanfiction on her phone, she can be found catching butterflies in the garden outside, sketching a new outfit design or watching video essays on YouTube. Kyriah lives with her family in Arouca, Trinidad.
