I am still trying to create a children’s book about an African American girl character who becomes either a poet or a spelling bee champion. I want to have the little girl become either a poet or the best speller in her elementary school. The girl’s name is going to be Ayesha. I am sure of that. This is going to be my first children’s book. I’ll work with this idea until I have the manuscript written and all I need is an illustrator for the book. I like the spelling bee champion idea if the class poet idea doesn’t work. I want the little girl to be really pretty too and my complexion. I want this to become a popular children’s book.
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
