poet/writer Ayesha Karim

I always wanted to be a teacher. Specifically an English teacher at a middle school. I love being a poet, a memoirist, a blogger and a book reviewer. I’m taking a course in Writing for children and teenagers right now. I love the things I do. I don’t want to be a nurse or a doctor. I have my BA in English. I want to go to Englishtown. I love New Jersey. I’m from Brooklyn originally. I believe in myself even though people say things about me. I really don’t care what people think about me. I’m going to love myself regardless. I really don’t care what anyone thinks of me. I love being a black/African woman named Ayesha Karim. I’m special, I’m worthy of love, I’m somebody. I’m beautiful. I’m a black beauty! I do a lot of cool things! Being me is being cool. I don’t want to do what anyone else does. The things I do are cool.
