Noah Lubendo is an emerging writer based in Vancouver, Canada, and a student at Mount Allison University, where he majors in Political Science and minors in Sociology. As a poet and essayist, Noah is concerned with cultural hybridity, post-colonial thought, and blackness as it relates to his Congolese heritage. His writing is influenced primarily by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jericho Brown, and Kendrick Lamar, and he hopes to publish a full-length manuscript soon.
