Margaret Daramola is a Nigerian born writer, spoken word artist and public speaker. She was raised in Switzerland, and began writing at an early age. Her High School thesis consisted of a collection of poems entitled Slam Poetry on Human Rights and Injustice. This work ranged through a variety of topics from human rights to the African diaspora. Her outstanding thesis–and subsequent writings, including an article entitled The Power of Poetry–led her to speaking engagements at major conferences and events organized by the African Union, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Women’s Hope International among several others. Her first book A Pathway Through Survival, was ranked #1 on Amazon's Hot New Releases in two categories. The book is a collection of poems that highlights the process of healing using topical themes such as falling in love and losing love, forgiving others and forgiving the self, and release (recovery).
Margaret currently studies Creative Writing and History at Hampton University in Virginia, where she simultaneously serves as a Christian ministry leader and an NCAA Division 1 Athlete. Following her book release, she was one of only two students from Hampton to be selected for the prestigious Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship.
