Writing myself into history

I wrote my Parents and Teachers as Allies presentation that I made a few changes to and published on http://www.nami.org in February 2016. I published Ayesha’s Story on http://www.nami.org in July 2013 as well. Then I took Memoir with Edvige Giunta my last two semesters at NJCU and I started writing my Schizophrenia autobiography. Oh man it is so awesome! I actually was writing myself into history in Memoir Workshop and Advanced Memoir. I became a memoir writer and found my voice as a writer. Edi recommended I read Jamaica Kincaid and I read Lucy and fell in love with the book. I am going to read Annie John after I finish reading The Woman Warrior. It’s a good book so far! The Woman Warrior is recommended reading in Edi’s Memoir classes.
