Born and raised in Miami, FL, Sunni Williams is a teacher by day and dreamchaser by night. She has taught a wealth of knowledge to students on two different continents. While writing poetry began for her at the tender age of 10, she didn’t venture into spoken word poetry until much later. In her 11th grade year of high school she wrote Untitled Love, her first spoken word poem. When she began attending Florida A&M University, her brother told her about a small poetry venue called Amen Ra’s. Upon walking through the establishment’s doors her life changed immensely. Black on Black Rhyme introduced Sunni to a spoken word movement and a family of writers who would later help cultivate her innate talent. In 2009, she packed that same venue for her first feature performance, where she awed the crowd with five original spoken word pieces. In that same year, she collaborated with other poets to help start FAMU’s first poetry organization Voices. In this organization, she still mentors young poets on a regular basis. Her mission is to use poetry to inspire transparency and self-acceptance.
