Idea for a children’s book. I want to create a children’s book where there is a female protagonist, me, Ayesha. I want her to overcome something or maybe overcome many struggles and adversities to become either a teenager who writes personal poetry or a Youth Poet Laureate! I don’t know what the book is going to be about yet. I want a cute little girl to be illustrated by an awesome artist/illustrator. This will be a favorite children’s book of women friends of mine. I am not sure what direction my children’s book project will take as yet. It’s an idea I have to write a children’s book about me as a little girl who becomes a teenage Poet or the woman Poet I am today.
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!
