Kina – The Prophetic Poet
“Walk, Talk, Live Success — I’m better than blessed because I am blessed by the best” said, Shakina Lewis-Small. She has mastered the delivery of strong messages to young audiences, as demonstrated by 12 plus years of experience in traveling as a Speaker and Spoken Word Artist to different churches, schools, detention centers, and organizations, conferences and various youth and young adult events. For her dedicated work with children and adolescents, she has been awarded many certificates of appreciation from various groups. Kina displays a unique style of reciting her poetry and is widely known for her inspirational parables and mottos. Kina is fueled by a burning passion to teach young people how to seek their purpose in God. She often reminds her audiences “To give God your first fruits, your youth, and God don’t need your leftovers…serve God while you have a chance”. Shakina graduated with her Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Services from the Center for Urban Theological Studies (CUTS). She also served as a Youth Leader at the Eagle’s Nest Christian Fellowship Ministry. Shakina was employed by Horizon House as an Employment Specialist/Case Manager, where she taught life skills to at risk young adults and inculcate poetry workshops on how poetry and spoken word can be used as therapeutic tool to aid individuals with mental health and disabilities.
Shakina currently works as an independent teaching artist for the University of the Arts and Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership where she teaches poetry and spoken word within the Pennsylvania schools. God has blessed Shakina with a lovely family, her husband singer and song writer Chase Sims and their children. Shakina states, “My poetry has one purpose, to compel hearts, convince minds and touch souls for Christ.” “I minister through poetry under the Master Poet”
