Ethar Alyamama

Taqwa Ali Mohammed Said is an Egyptian poet who has a Bachelor of Arts and Education in English from Cairo University. She obtained a diploma in Curriculum Development and took courses in Human Resource Management. She participated in several international conferences inside and outside of Egypt. She travelled to the United States of America in 2007, where she began her journey with reading about several different disciplines. Her interest amplified in reading poetry, rhetoric, history, and rearticulating real stories and legends in a poetic style which encourages reading in different cultures. She believes in the need to ‘widen the horizon’—to be open to the culture and history of other people. She also requests to ‘revive’ the dignified personalities and follow them, and identify the tyrant and weak personalities in order to avoid their paths. She seeks to spread global culture with her poetry, without forgetting her Eastern roots and identity. She emphasizes the support of human values and virtues, and raises important issues by using credible and intelligible language which is able to address the mind and conscience of any individual and interact with them. She adores nature and everything associated to it and deeply describes human emotions by portraying them in her poetry.
