About the Show

Sam Roi Yot, Thailand

13 years ago, Jungle Flower narrowly escaped a psychologically abusive relationship. After spending the last 7 years hosting community events where other people could share their stories of abuse, in January 2019 she embarked on a nine month solo journey through Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand to write and release her own stories. JUNGLE FLOWER DRAGON HEART is her homecoming show, a collection of travel stories, spoken word poetry and visuals through which she shares the 10 Vital Lessons which have helped her heal from abuse.

Jungle Flower, formerly known as Reesee Zigga Zagga, is a photographer, poet, interviewer, and humanitarian. During her almost 20 year career in the arts she has worked with Grammy Award winning artists Drake, Mya, Melanie Fiona, T.I., and Ciara, as well as Dr. Oz, actor Terry Crews and former NBA All Star Chris Bosh.


After escaping a psychologically abusive relationship, she founded Reclaim Your Voice in 2012, a grassroots organization which creates safe spaces where people who have experienced abuse can share their stories.  Since creating this movement in the name of peace and healing for all, she has hosted over 50 events of this nature, performed spoken word poetry at notable platforms including TEDxRougeRiver, and is a frequent guest speaker at schools where she reminds youth of their own capacities to be agents of change. She is the recipient of the 2014 Yinnergy Award for her work in the Malvern Community, the 2015 VolunteerToronto Legacy Award, the 2016 Roger Fisher Scholarship, and the 2017 Write Your Self Scholarship.

"The show was phenomenal...seeing Reesees performance I'm still processing in the most positive way, coming from an abusive and toxic home situation being able to hear Reesee speak on how she got away and managed to live the tremendous life she lived and all of the healing she experienced is extremely special to me and gives me so much hope for my future."
