Panama Soweto is a performance writer, recording artist and educator. Channeling his rollercoaster performances as a spoken word artist, his lecture is a hybrid of storytelling and mentoring.

Panama challenges ideas about bullying, single-parenthood, sexual abuse, self-advocacy, and discrimination through his mastery of spoken word.

Literary bloggers have called his work, “transformative,” and “inspiring.” His work has been featured on National Public Radio (NPR), The, and most recently as a speaker for TEDXCSU.
