Event Description

Rohan Nijhawan

Rohan Nijhawan

Rohan Nijhawan is a 27-year-old Cambridge born poet and activist. Born with a one of a kind unknown disease, Rohan has experienced the ups and downs in life. Although he has a disability, Rohan does not let that disability define him. He has been skydiving twice in California, mountain biking in Colorado, and most recently, snorkeling in Jamaica. He is a self-described life of the party as many of his friends can attest to. Rohan gave his friends and family a challenge: describe his poetry in one word. Some of the words that came up were: revolutionary, smooth-truths, insightful and introspective. Rohan tells a powerful story through his poetry and activism. His biggest influence in his poetry, and, for that matter, his life is The Legend himself, Robert Nesta Marley. Be on the lookout for his first published book, As I Lay My Horn Down, scheduled to come out in the summer of 2018.
