Priscilla was born at the Kings College Hospital (London) to Zambian parents, an Electronics Engineer and a Typist respectively. In the early years of her life, her family returned to Zambia where she was raised and surrounded by a large extended family alongside her 3 siblings of whom she is the last born.
Adapting to her new settings brought about a sense of confusion, uncertainty and feelings of anxiety because with the “new family” there was stiff competition for parental attention. Feeling the outsider in her own home, she developed a passion for poetry and could escape into her verses and live within her words, habitually reluctant to share them, she would only show her older brother who encouraged her. In her teenage years, she would jot a line or two in her friends’ scrapbooks.
After studying Chemical Engineering at the Copperbelt University in Zambia, she returned to England and study with Hertfordshire University and Ulster University and is currently a Biomedical Scientist at Luton and Dunstable Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. She lives in Hertfordhire with her husband and two children. Priscilla always had the feeling that one day she should share her poems with the world. The time is now.
