Char­lot­te Hig­gins is a great role mod­el for aspir­ing young poets whose aims are to engage with their audi­ence with a power­ful stage pres­ence. As its a dynam­ic, genu­ine and influ­en­tial per­form­ance that undoubtedly reaches the audi­ence. Charlotte’s per­form­ance is an example. Its a power­ful per­form­ance that brings those writ­ten lyr­ics and words to life, and to be more cre­at­ive — brings the noise of the audi­ence to life.
