This Saturday June 18, 2016 is my poetry event for the 22nd Annual New Jersey Wordsmith competition that I am a winner of. I think my poem My Enemy may have won 2nd place in the wordsmith competition this year. Back in June 2012 I was the star of the 2012 AAMH client awards dinner. I had two poems typed up on poster boards and on easels. I read my poems on the stage or at the podium four years ago this month. I love being a poet!
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. 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 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!
