A Busboys and Poets event hosted this week by Jael Benjamin
Originally from Atlanta, Jael began honing in on her skills in the DMV poetry scenes in 2017. She’s worked, shared stages, featured and competed with some of the best poets in the country. With having only performed poetry in church or open mics, Jael stepped into the poetry slam scene for the first time and took home the title of the 2018 Beltway Poetry Grand Slam champion. Through poetry Jael aspires to tell her truth with hopes that others will reveal theirs and realize someone in the world is waiting on them to find and share their undiscovered diamond.
