Executive MBA programs generally target 10 years WE at a minimum, so you may find it a stretch to convince them you have garnered the leadership experience requisite with others in your EMBA class. As for regular full time programs, I think you would have a good shot against your peer group. You have some very unique stories to tell including your NGO involvement and your poetry success. These kinds of unusual experiences are what an adcom looks for to diversify the applicant pool. International experience and travel, coupled with your artistic and creative side are a good recipe for differentiation. Let us know if we can help you hone your vision and optimize your application.
