Some people just have a way with words! Medgine is one of those people. This Edmonton-based, talented spoken word artist loves speaking her mind on stage. She has been performing for four years and constantly finds motivation and passion from God and the human spirit. Medgine is much intrigued by the human spirit and its ability to overcome adversity and pain.
As a creative and humble woman, Medgine believes she still has lots to learn from life and from others. Medgine is all about bettering herself, taking risks, and stepping out of her comfort zone.
Medgine gives some powerful advice. She says:…
“Do not belittle what you have to offer to your community. When you begin to serve your community, you become a greater gift to yourself and the world around you.”
Three things Medgine simply cannot live without:
We asked about her favorites:
- Travel and sight-see
- Attend concerts and local events.
