My name's Tunay I am 26 years old and I'm an events producer and poet. I started events in 2014 in December and I ran my first event at a place called Chicken Town. This event ended up running successfully for 18 months and it grew so much in that time. Events have always been my passion as I enjoy bringing people together and I love music so this allowed me to do both. At times it became quite stressful but I loved every second of it and it's become my passion now and something I aspire to do going forward.
I started poetry in 2008 at the age of 14 after moving from Essex to London and the end of year 9 no school would take me because my record was terrible. So I got moved into a PRU called Inspire. The guy who began teaching used hip hop as a way to teach us English and began making us record songs about certain topics so we'd remember it. I started off quite badly taking ages to pick it up but I began to develop a style and strategy and it became easier for me to write. My 1st poem was a success and then I began writing more consistently to the point where I can write more and have so much more confidence in my ability.
