Cynthia’s Reviews

When I heard Cynthia perform her poem, “Womyn” at the Last Poet Standing competition in 2014, I was rocked to the core. It was the first time I had ever heard such a dynamic performer. She didn’t win the competition, but she won me over. Her words made my heart beat faster and I’ve been a fan ever since. Cynthia, please never stop!

Thank you so much, Cynthia Amoah, for embracing the gift that you have been graced with. What a grand experience it was to see, hear and feel your presence during one of your performances at the Ohio State University. I am a better human being for having met you and I haven’t even gotten to the part about your impact on my daughter who will be an upcoming freshman at OSU in the fall. We reference you much as she is finding her own voice… she too is a poet, writer and performer. You, my dear, are on a path in His will and destined to make a huge impact on the world. I am so thankful for your life.

In our top SUNY and “premier public university” alma mater at Binghamton University, Cynthia was always a breath of fresh air. She dropped conscious words before the term being “woke” was popular. And at a predominately white institution, although we cultivated a strong black presence and atmosphere, her words resonated with me and with many other people that looked like us. Keep doing your thing, Cynthia. We need to make sure there’s no shortage of sisters doing their thing despite all the obstacles and challenges black women face on a daily basis.

The poem Cynthia delivered in my classroom spoke to the heart of EVERY young person in the room! And the writing that emerged, even for my most reluctant writers was unbelievable! As an educator, I try to always engage the expertise we have in the community to connect with young people. Cynthia was able to come in during a creative writing project, share her work and my students were immediately captivated and inspired. I think they saw and felt her warmth and authenticity and could definitely identify with her message. Thank you again Cynthia!

I remember how low I was feeling about the total disregard of black lives in this country and the power of Cynthia’s words calmed me for a moment. When I feel low about the many obstacles life throws at me, I say to myself, “keep going butterfly.” This is what she taught me. Cynthia, you are truly a gift and are deeply talented. I’m so proud of you and you’re such an inspiration.

My first time watching Cynthia put on a performance was at a friend’s wedding back in 2013. She instantly gained a fan that day. I also had the honor to watch her live at a non-profit charity gala for Nationwide Children’s Hospital and that night solidified her works with me. She’s captivating, been following her ever since.

Cynthia’s words are simply phenomenal. Listen closely or you will miss the meaning behind her words.

Take a minute and learn from Cynthia Amoah because she is my mentor and I want to be just like her.

Through her impassioned poetry, Cynthia shares her bold life story with the world. She assembles her words like a jigsaw puzzle and connects their meanings in ways that inspire the importance of one’s roots. In leaving a piece of herself in each phrase, she successfully remains authentic, raw, and fresh.

It’s been amazing seeing the journey of Poetess Cynthia. She has graced many varieties of stages, from church gatherings to share her passion for God, to marriage ceremonies where her take on love exudes from her every word, to Ted Ex stages, tv shows, talk radio, and many more. I was so moved by her performance of Honam that I reached out to her to help me with a legal paper about my first love, Ghana. The piece she wrote for me was the first time I realized that her gift of poetry transcends the spaces in which poetry is thought to thrive, her words brought the passion and fervor I needed in my otherwise legal analysis of a paper. I loved working with her and can’t wait to continue to collaborate on many projects to come. So grateful for your gift Cynthia!

Cynthia Amoah gave a powerful performance for Grand Street Settlement’s annual woman empowerment event at Viacom in Times Square. She left every young girl at the event enlightened and empowered. Her words, message, and raw emotion were inspirational and gave me goosebumps. I was delighted she performed and I will continue to extend an invitation for future events.

I met Cynthia Amoah at Columbia University’s “Black Night” event last year. Which is an event produced by Columbia University, to honor and celebrate the African diaspora. She was one of the integral reasons why Black Night was such a success.

Cynthia’s performance was dynamic, raw and powerful. Her performance moved the audience, we watched her grace the stage with her poetry, and we were fed by it and her enormous presence. I love, love, love, her work.

Cynthia is truly one of a kind!!! Hearing her for the first time brought so many emotions. We had no choice but to ask her to share her talents at our wedding. She initially made a poem just for us for our engagement video. After hearing the poem, we decided to ask her to recite this poem at our wedding, which was one of the best decisions we made. We must say it was truly the icing on the cake. Trying to hold back the tears that came down anyway was when we knew that she is truly a special person inside and out. We pray Cynthia’s talents allows her to reach the skies and beyond. We pray that every individual that hears her words are blessed beyond measures. It was truly a blessing to have Cynthia be apart of our special day. We will never forget the glistening touch she added to our wedding. Cheers to you Cynthia and all your future endeavors. We are praying and rooting for you every step of the way.

I was lucky enough to have Cynthia on a “Women of Color Panel” that I hosted at the University Neighborhood high school I worked at. She spoke with such a passion and eloquence that kept my students engaged, something that is not an easy task. My women of color students were so blown away and inspired by Cynthia’s story, being able to make poetry her full-time job. Being able to see someone truly make a living by pursuing their passion is not only moving for my students, but even other adults in the room were truly captivated by her energy. I couldn’t be more grateful to have had her come to my school and truly make an impact in just three hours. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future! Thank you again Cynthia, keep spreading that black girl magic sis!

When Cynthia Amoah speaks, she speaks with conviction. That’s why I never take her words lightly because everything she says is truly profound. Every poem she delivers she puts her all and you literally feel her, her spirit and soul. You feel the chills. I cried the first time I heard her deliver the poem Black Before Beautiful because she really touched me and I could resonate with her message.

Denise Fasuyi, Fashion Designer, DesireByDenise

Cynthia Amoah has this amazing gift, the way her words can give you chills, but yet inspire you at the same time is sincerely a gift from God. Cynthia has performed twice at my annual LoveYOULiveNow, a women empowerment event held every year in NYC, and has left the audience in awe and till this day leaves me speechless by the use of her words and the tone of her voice. She sets the tone for uplifting and encouragement throughout all her poems. Book her, you won’t regret it.

Cynthia Amoah represents Ghanaian excellence. Sharing her talent with the world and empowering people at the same time is definitely worth celebrating!
