I found self love and acceptance in spite of my schizophrenia. My schizophrenia didn’t have to go away for me to smile when I think of myself. I love that I got my degree in English and Creative Writing. I love that I became a published writer and poet. I feel special every time someone says “my friend poet/writer Ayesha Karim”. I know I will have at least three poetry successes before the end of this year. I’m also taking WRAP in September for the fourth time. I love sunflowers, the beach and warm beautiful weather!
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!
