She is the author of the poetry collection Depression & Other Magic Tricks & one of the most-viewed performance poets of all time, whose poem «Explaining My Depression to My Mother» has become a cultural phenomenon with over 60,000,000 views. Sabrina has competed in many poetry slams, most notably as a member of the 2014 National Championship Toronto Poetry Slam team & as the 2015 Toronto representative at the Women of the World Poetry Slam. Sabrina has published with ESPNW & made her TV debut in 2016, writing & voicing the third installment of Sport Chek’s Olympic Manifesto commercial series. Sabrina facilitates writing & spoken word workshops all over North America to groups of all ages, focusing on the ways stigma stops us from connecting with one another & the mental health benefits of a daily writing practice.

ALSO: An opening set by the amazing BAM! Toronto Youth Poetry Slam team!
