Maia Mayor (@maiamayor) interviews artists from all over the world via webcam. Todays feature’d guest is Yoko Tamada (@yokoapriltamada). She speaks on feminism, the biracial experience, the queer experience, stereotypes, and more. Yoko April Tamada is the president of Warren High School’s poetry club, Woke Words. She has performed at venues from California to New York, including the United Nations Peace Project, Paradigm Talent Agency, Denim Days, and opening for Demi Lovato with an educational video about gun control for March For Our Lives. In addition to her high profile activism, she also performs at dozens of schools across California, along with various open mics such as Get Lit’s Melt the Mic at the Actors Gang and College Bridge Academy in Watts. Yoko hopes to use her poetry to spread more love and inspiration for her second consecutive year as a Get Lit Player. Oh! And she also thoroughly enjoys petting the smallest of dogs!
