I am a Mentor for the DREAM program at Mercer. I would love to teach English at Mercer or even tutor English in my ideal job scenario in my head. I am having the time of my life mentoring the amazing young men and women who are college students at Mercer and are a part of that program. I like them all a lot. Some of them talk to me some don’t but most do and I feel very excited whenever I think “going to work at 11am leaving work at 3pm”. Mercer is a special place. I went to Mercer after high school. I got my Associate’s degree there and this year is Mercer’s 50th commencement. I will be walking in the procession representing the class of 2007. The professors for the most part all seem to genuinely care about the students there. I can remember my first semester working as a Mentor at Mercer and taking notes and going to class with my Mentees Kiara, Christian and Chris. I will be staying at Mercer for at least another two or three semesters. I love my job. I am giving back to my alma mater. The informational interview that my Mentees are doing made me think if this was an assignment for me I’d interview a Black Opera singer like Leontyne Price and ask all the questions I could think of for someone that was born in 1927 and she is still alive today. I want to interview Leontyne Price and ask her 10-15 questions. See you tomorrow in class Mentees. I love to sing and I have a pretty telephone voice. I just called this man that had a flyer on the bulletin board in the library and he said he gives piano lessons and voice lessons to all ages even adults. I am going to get voice lessons this summer if it’s affordable. I have to budget for voice lessons but no work and no school after May 11.
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 41-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!
