All Women's Voices

Dr. Kathy Watad
I arrived to Canada a few years ago, carrying inside me passion, eagerness and enthusiasm for learning, growing, expanding and engaging. In fact, education and consulting were and still are my mission, not just work!
Back in Jerusalem, I dedicated almost twenty years in education, consulting and facilitation. I worked 18 years as a senior professor at the David Yellen Academic College for teachers .
Here in London, I did a lot of work with immigrants and refugees and I felt the huge need for guidance and consultation in family issues, parenting and educational - cultural challenges.
I decided to go ahead and to open my unique services for immigrants in general and for the Arab community in particular.

In short, Sum-01 (sum-one) kicks raps over dope beats. Her style; has yet to find a box to fit in. Her image; unique all to her own. Her influences; strong female emcee's from the early 90's. She raps, and DJ Hullewud spins her boom-bap sounds. Often jacking new school beats, blending with her old school sound. Sum-01 is a breath of fresh air. Her music resonates with Hip-Hop culture purists, aficionados, curators and devotees to old school sound.
staHHr has been perfecting her craft and honing her lyrical warrior skills since the latter part of hip hop’s” Golden Era”. Carving a niche for herself by interweaving intellect, natural law, metaphysics and social awareness with the essence of pure, unadulterated hip hop, she consistently provides a welcome breath of fresh air. No stranger to the elements and culture of hip hop, staHHr has earned stripes and sharpened her sword in street ciphers, mc battles (Blaze, The Source, Red Bull, etc.) and performing on local, national and global stages. During the course of her career, this verbal vanguard has accumulated a global fan base and an impressive resume of releases that include DOOM’s “Mm Food” and “Born Like This” and King Geedorah‘s “Take Me to Your Leader”.
