Gabrielle E. Mohamed

Gabrielle E. Mohamed is a 25-year-old Guyanese writer who graduated from the University of Guyana in June 2017 with a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in English- Linguistics. As an emerging Creole poet, Gabrielle believes that the employment of her Guyanese space is essential in facilitating a breakdown and breakthrough process that will allow us to find our true selves that is devoid of any colonial touch. Thus her writing style attempts to capture the continual influence of colonial and postcolonial attitudes and behaviors within the lives of her countrymen. Moreover as a Catholic individual, it is her testimony that through the introduction of her Christian faith the escape of these colonial touches are possible, and will also enable us to establish the solid grounds of nationhood that will not force anyone into a state of being unhomed, but allow us to accept our fate as hybrid individuals of the Caribbean.
