Sabrina Mahfouz to judge SLAMbassadors 2017!

The judge of the 2017 SLAMbassadors Youth Slam Championship is poet, playwright, educator and performer, the incomparable Sabrina Mahfouz.

A legend on both the British and international theatre and poetry scenes, Sabrina has a passion not just for writing and editing but also for inspiring a new generation of writers to reach their fullest potential – both on and off the stage.
