At every level there’s a new bunch of haters ready to yap about me. I have come so far from where I was just 5 years ago. My self image is good. I smile in my bedroom mirror after I put on my lipstick. I am a Memoir alumna. I am a member of NJCU Memoir, a closed group on Facebook. I got in to Cave Canem twice: Fall 2014 and Fall 2015. I went once in Fall 2015. I had such an amazing experience at Cave Canem. The other women made me feel like I was a part of the fourteen woman group poetry workshop. I don’t care if I’m not popular or anybody’s favorite person. I like my life and I like myself. I’ve had some successes in Poetry and Writing Memoirs and now I’m writing a Young Adult novel called, Girl Meets Boy.
I am a Black Guyanese woman. I'm thirty nine years old. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 48-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 lit course. I love reading memoirs. I also 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! View all posts by TheAyeshaSite
