Mouminat Damer


Mouminat Damer

Mouminat Damer was born in Huntington Beach, California. She is an adjunct instructor of English, a bilingual poet, and author of On Tears & Regret--a collection of poetry. Her poems have been published in RipRap literary journal and her poem, Dear Syria, was chosen as a finalist in Consequence Magazine's women writing about war contest. Her pieces reflect a longing and ties to the motherland as well as struggles that arose as a result of the Syrian Civil War. Her writing also focuses on the experiences of growing up as a first-generation Arab-American Muslim woman and the cultural differences that left her identity scattered across two different cultures: Arab and American. Never enough of either. But just enough of both.
