Yazmeen Mayes

Yazmeen Mayes

Biography

Yazmeen Mayes is a playwright and composer from Georgia. When she was six, she started guitar lessons in pursuit of her dream of becoming Hannah Montana. Later, Yazmeen joined choir, where she sang for the next ten years and discovered harmony, “toilet tunes” (copyright pending), and arranging, which eventually led her to composition. Yazmeen is now in her third year as a music student at Kennesaw State University. She started playwriting during the pandemic, and the process of writing, editing, and questioning has allowed her to learn and heal through the page. She hopes her work allows others to do the same.
