Even if you’ve never heard his name you’ve probably met someone with his words tattooed on their skin. Or heard his words sung at a music concert. Atticus, the young anonymous poet and New York Times Best-Selling Author, has taken the world by storm with his beautiful words and powerful simple themes of love and strength of human spirit.
As a songwriter, IN-Q’s hit single “Love You Like a Love Song” by Selena Gomez went multi-platinum, winning him a BMI award. He has also written with renowned artists including Aloe Blacc, Miley Cyrus, Mike Posner, and Foster the People. His other work includes co-writing the Official Coca-Cola FIFA 2014 World Cup Anthem and being featured on “Good Life”, from ZHU's Generation Why album. Combined, his songs have accumulated over 1 billion views on YouTube alone.
Leading organizations including Google, Facebook, IBM, Nike, Spotify, Lululemon, Shazam, Live Nation, The Grammy Foundation and many more have brought IN-Q in to lead his creativity and storytelling workshop and motivate their teams through his performance.
Ultimately IN-Q writes to entertain, inspire, and challenge his audiences to look deeper into the human experience and ask questions about themselves, their environment, and the world at large.
The search for a home—what Najwa describes as a place where the soul and heart feel at peace—was central to her early years. When she arrived in Canada at the age of sixteen, she felt unstable and adrift in an unfamiliar place.
Nevertheless, she completed her education, and went on to become a teacher as well as a doctoral candidate in educational leadership. Her first students, a group of young refugees, led her back to her original passion: writing. She began to heal her sixteen-year-old self by writing to heal her students.
Since self-publishing her first collection of poetry and prose in 2016, Najwa has become an inspiration to millions of people worldwide.
Najwa has become a trailblazing voice for women everywhere and was name dropped by the New York Times and CBS News among others.
Drawing on her own experiences of displacement, discrimination, and abuse, Najwa uses her words to encourage others to build a home within themselves; to live, love, and create fearlessly.
