Collection: Sébastien Streit

Sébastien began his journey of life on Vancouver Island. At the age of seven, he and his family moved internationally. From a young age, he loved to play with words. It wasn't until middle school that he gathered his first interest in poetry with his introduction to William Shakespeare's sonnets. 

Once in high school, poetry quickly became his favourite unit in his literature classes. At first, however, he was predominantly interested in reading poetry, but he eventually mustered enough courage to attempt to write a poem. After a few years of experimenting with wit and humour in his early writings, he became more focused on expressing himself. While dealing with mental health issues, he used poetry as a way to cope with his misunderstanding of himself and the world around him.

 Attending university and being introduced to drugs and alcohol seemed to be the start of his downfall. Becoming ever more ensnared in the vicious cycle, he found little pleasure in life. As his struggles intensified, and when all was grim, he was offered a chance to attend a rehabilitation center. Having accepted, he then experienced some of the most profound days of his life. Emerging with a new hope to combat his addiction, he now carries on with his new chance at life.
