This is how Vania describes me on page one of her Women in Lit paper: “Ayesha is an African American woman in her mid 30s with a Creative Writing degree from New Jersey City University. She is a self-love advocate, a peer mentor, and an employee (volunteer) for NAMI at Mercer County, New Jersey and a schizophrenic.” Then she goes on to say “I am a student taking a Women in Literature course and my professor Edi Giunta is the one who connected me to Ayesha.” Vania’s paper is excellent! She seemed to really connect with me. In her paper Vania goes on, “I sit in the conference room and begin to interview Ayesha. We talk about her life, her childhood, her relationships, her illness and her progress. She, with an easy voice and a soulful sereneness answers each question in depth. She never says no or refrains from answering, she is more than an open book.”
