Saara Ali is a Canadian poet and spoken word artist based in Dubai, UAE. She is also a lawyer and entrepreneur and now a published writer. Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Saara has lived on four continents and visited over 40 countries. Her interactions on her travels intrigued her to further explore the human mind, spirit and connection. This prompted her to start writing and jotting down her understanding of the world in words that she and many like her could relate to. Her work reveals her love for human connection, potential and the power of the written and spoken word. While fascinated by new cultures and languages, she is especially intrigued by the common thread that runs through us and the universal truths that bind us all.
