Roxy Azari Biography

Roxanna ‘Roxy’ Azari is an Iranian-American Poet, Performer, Writer and Educator who breathes and works towards transformational social change through language.

From a very young age, Azari has used poetry as a tool to redesign the world around her and continues to live her passion of combining art with activism. Azari’s journey began in 2006, when she won both the New York Knicks Poetry Slam and the Urban Word NYC Poetry Slam.
