Paulina is a recognized and accomplished spoken word artist and arts educator. A member of the League of Poets, some of her high level accomplishments include being featured in When Sisters Speak on stage at the St Lawrence Centre for the Performing Arts (2017 and 2019), producing the Words by the Water Literary Festival (a 3 day festival that was a Spark project of the City of Toronto’s Cultural Hot Spot in 2016) and representing Toronto as a national team finalist in the Canadian Festival Of Spoken Word both in 2015 and 2017. Paulina continues to be one of the main artist educators developing curriculum and teaching for established arts organizations including Harbourfront Centre, Lakeshore Arts and in schools across both Toronto School boards and beyond. Her work has also been featured on Bell Fibe TV, Huffington Post Canada, AfroGlobal TV, Metro Morning and CBC Morning. Paulina’s role as an artist educator and spoken word artist has allowed her to teach, support, engage and inspire youth in a way that is outside of an education system that sometimes presents barriers to learning for young people simply because alternative methods of education are not available.
