I love the gospel song Never Give Up by Yolanda Adams. It is such an inspirational song and it has such a nice music video too. “Visions that can change the world trapped inside an ordinary girl. She looks just like me to afraid to dream out loud…” I love the song because God gave my dream a chance to come true. My dream was self love or self acceptance and in my 30s I have achieved it. I look forward to the future because I will keep loving myself, being good to myself and writing poetry. I am working on a book length memoir that will be 60,000 words or so to have a book. I have almost 25,000 words right now. My first goal is 40,000 words by next January 2018 around the time I turn 37 years old. Women rule. African American women can do anything!
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.
