“Samantha Badaoa’s debut collection of poetry, so am i, exhibits a fine transition from stage to page. Badaoa’s roots in poetry grew from stag- es across Canada as she honed her writing and performative skills into one of Windsor’s best slam poets… Her poetry urges readers to make deep connections via the personal truths, shared trauma, and outpour- ing of hope and love that she generously gives. Her vulnerable honesty is refreshing.”

– Vanessa Shields, author of Look At Her and I Am That Woman

“Here is the world spoken into being… In work profoundly personal,we witness through Badaoa’s fierce lyricism the struggle to identify what one must be in light of the world around them and how what is
carried with you is central to the person you must and will be. A new voice for the Souwesto region, rising from the post-industrial miasma. One that will and should undoubtedly become central to our cultural future.”

– D.A. Lockhart, author of Devil in the Woods and Breaking Right
