I am planning on bringing twenty Guyanese beef patties to Memoirfest this December ’15. My mother and my stepfather are both Guyanese from a place called Georgetown in Guyana. I am going to bring my process journal to Memoirfest and read one of my two to three page journal entries! This will be the first Memoirfest I’ll be going to as an alumna!
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 41-credit BA degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
