I am happy to be able to help my Mentees. Some of them are African American and I work at Mercer. I try to be helpful to all of my Mentees. Some of them are Caucasian and others are Hispanic. They are all very nice and I have been able to connect with almost all of them. Sometimes when I meet a new Mentee at the beginning of the semester I introduce myself to them to familiarize myself with their names as well.
It was mine though. It led to a lot of successes in my adulthood and positive thoughts that would replace a lot of negative ones.
I almost sold sixty copies of my chapbook, forty to go.
As a little girl I was eager to grow up. I’m 37 and I feel good about my life the way it is now.
I have a boyfriend now again. I’m in a relationship with a guy named Caleb.
Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden is one of my favorite poems.
I remember times it was harder to smile or feel happy. Some days I feel like putting my dancing shoes on and think of wanting to dance at a party or when I’m out with my friends. I want to celebrate and enjoy my life more.
I wrote a memoir and soon I’ll have a book. 10,000 more words and I’ll have a book!
