Luma Khabbaz' Revolution Girl Book Release
Luma Khabbaz is a student at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. She grew up in Valparaiso, Indiana, a city that magically transforms into Chicago when people overseas ask her where she's from.

Luma combines her passion for advocacy and poetry into poems and spoken word meant to bring human elements to serious topics. She realized she was a poet in sixth grade, after she discovered the songs she'd been writing for years didn't have any music with them.

After taking a break from writing, she found her muse in 2011 when the Syrian revolution began. She hasn't stopped writing since. A daughter of two immigrants, Luma spent her childhood summers in Syria with family members. She draws on these summers for poems about Syria, since she has been unable to go back.

Luma also writes about sometimes taboo topics such as mental health. No community is exempt from these problems, and the more people speak up about their experiences, the more others will realize they are not alone.

She is often asked to speak at events and rallies where she uses poetry as a form of persuasion.

In her free time, Luma likes to watch The Office with her friends and ruin it by reciting every line from memory. She is loud, angry and shamelessly herself, and she hopes other women know they can be too.

Book description:

Revolution Girl is a collection of poems that will speak to any girl, woman or third culture child. The poems are bold and honest, what it means to be woman. This book explores serious issues very personal to the author, but it preaches hope and recovery. Because with every hardship comes ease.
