Flora describes herself as ‘an earthly black woman writing in a stream of literary consciousness’.
In May 2019 Flora published her debut a Poetic Anthology, Tomorrow’s Dream.
With writings from an unprovoked sense of creativity, the themes that are explored in her work delve into the complexities in society and the dynamics of growing up as a young South Sudanese woman in the Australian Diaspora. As a Pan Africanist, Flora explores many themes and discourses which advocate for a free, self-reliant, and self-defining Africa. She embodies these beliefs through arguments which predominately deconstruct present day neo-colonial regimes.
