I shared my personal narrative my last two semesters at NJCU. I shared in class in both Memoir classes. I shared from the two memoirs I wrote in Edi Giunta’s classes at Memoirfest in December 2014 and May 2015. I had never shared outside of a safe space like NAMI Mercer NJ or AAMH partial care program or in a therapy session. I took a risk being that vulnerable but I am so glad I took that risk. Everyone responded positively at Memoirfest!
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 36-credit Bachelor's 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!
