I didn’t know just five years ago…

I had the ultimate good fortune to have taken two semesters of Memoir with Edvige Giunta. I am going to be meeting with her and other former students who are members of the NJCU Writers Workshop. I feel like I am a part of the NJCU community since I took Memoir with Edi. I didn’t feel like I was really a part of the NJCU community until I took Memoir with Edi. I feel so much like I am a part of NJCU now. I feel like that about Mercer too where I work as a Mentor for the DREAM program. I love both schools but right now I’m taking a course that is going to prepare me to take the Praxis CORE for Educators test. I want to become a Kindergarten teacher. The kids will call me Miss Ayesha! I know the kids I teach will feel cared about and safe with me.
