Ferrari Sheppard of Stop Being Famous interviews Kenyan-born British-Somali award-winning poet Warsan Shire.

Shire talks about the the importance of memory and its connecting factor to human experiences, writing and seeking inspiration in the cinema, the writers and books that inspire her, and discusses her poetic career versus her personal life. 

One of my favourite parts of the interview is when she beautifully and boldly declares that “everyone is deserving of love…” as one of the things that she is most sure of in this world.
