I want to share my thoughts. Sometimes honestly I can tell that certain people I know of but don’t really know personally don’t like me. I learned to love Ayesha. I never waste too much time on who doesn’t like me. I don’t really seek to be accepted. I am the kind of person who follows my own path in life and I love being busy. I love my job at Mercer. People always get me mixed up with a Mentee of mine Kiara because we are the two dark brown black women. I have spent my life getting verbally abused by other people or having my feelings hurt and hearing mean voices. I know that I am as good if not better than other people. People judge me because of the color of my skin but people are amazed by my character. I’m a poet and a writer and I don’t apologize for being me. I know I am the most beautiful girl in the world but in reality society defines beautiful as white or close white and thin and long hair and straight teeth and obviously I do not fit in with that standard of beauty!
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 41-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!
