Martina Yvette is no newbie when it comes to the spoken word scene. A Savannah native, Martina grew up serving and performing as a slam poet, actress, and host for local poetry events and engagements in the community while working with All Walks of Life Incorporated and Leaders of the Knew School. Nowadays, this amateur food blogger and former social media specialist spends her time educating others and advocating for awareness of black mental health needs, female empowerment, and HBCU education advancement.

In her free time, Martina is a punny-honey who loves all things Disney and the color yellow. She is ecstatic about being back in the city that taught her how to spread her poetic wings as she continues to share her love for spoken word with other young authors as a Teaching Artist.
