I heard someone saying that they didn’t like me and I thought Ayesha you’ve come a long way. Their opinion didn’t bother me like it very well could’ve ten years ago even five years ago but I’m at a point in my life where I want to have a book length memoir by my 40th birthday. I want to produce a book length memoir and three chapbooks. I don’t care who don’t like me I really don’t. Ms. Ayesha Karim the way Mercer wrote my name makes me happy and think of how beautiful the ocean and the sky is. I appreciate life. I wouldn’t go back I am living in the here and now because I cannot control tomorrow or yesterday. There are so many people that dislike me that if it weren’t for having a few friends in influential places my story would change. I didn’t know Edi Giunta would be so nice to me and treat me so nicely and teach me how to write memoir and put spotlight on me when I took Memoir with her and even now as I am a member of the NJCU Writers Workshop. Edi Giunta is a good person and I wish her even more success and happiness! She is such a sweet person. I also am very thankful to Chris KP Brown.
