I am going to share a journal enrty from my Process Journal at Memoirfest on December 19, 2015

I am going to Memoirfest this coming Saturday December 19, 2015. I am bringing mozzarella sticks. I am going to share a journal entry from my Process Journal about the time when I was going through puberty and my great aunt Sybil tried to bleach my dark chocolate skin. I am looking forward to the party, Thomas is picking me up at 3pm at Journal Sqaure. After I turned thirty I learned to accept myself and my dark complexion and my body and all my imperfections.
