Being Me | Rapt! X IMA | Episode 2: Mustafa


Some moments stay with us for a lifetime. This is a poem inspired by the story of Mustafa Kardoli, written and performed by Abdul Hammoud. This piece is centred around an incident during high school when a peer made a racially motivated insult to Mustafa, and how that moment has shaped his approach to dealing with conflict. The poem explores Mustafa’s passion for soccer, finding purpose and belonging in his sport.
