Balpolam Idi is a creative writer who uses writing to convey her thoughts, opinions, and occasionally, grievances. She dresses her ideas in stories; other times, they are disguised as poems, and quite often, she parades them naked as the day they were conceived in her mind.
Being a female born into a middle-class family in northeastern Nigeria had shaped her in more ways than she would like to admit. She is currently working on her first book, a memoir about her childhood. Balpolam is enthusiastic about education and health and will always be found volunteering towards a cause in these aspects. She strongly believes that words shape our world, and through them, minds can be reshaped, hope can be shared, and life renewed.
Her writing had been published in JETS Magazine, Project Naija Magazine, Sarauta Network, Data-Driven Investor, and one of her stories was shortlisted for the Africa@2050 climate flash fiction contest. Her other works can be found on her Medium blog - balpolamidi.medium.com and Instagram page - @balliehashem.
