I love the Pokemon sunflowers. I’m thinking of the amazing young adults (my Mentees) that I work with at Mercer. Some of them love pokemon and pokemon has a laughing sunflower as a character. I love the sun and in the summer I get really dark. My male friend Mike Rosidivito told me he does too when we were dating. I don’t feel like God make me the wrong color. God created me with dark skin, with certain features. God made me a Black/African woman and I am so very proud of my deep roots. Tupac said “some say the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice, I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots.” That ‘s a great line from Tupac Shakur may he rest in peace. He died at twenty five years old. That’s crazy. I have beautiful dark skin. I wish all the people who have helped me and continue to help me the best of luck in the present and in the future. I wish all my friends and family continued success. I wish success for myself too with my writing endeavors (poetry, memoir, blogger, for children and YA) and with my second Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.
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!
