When people think of me they usually think of my unique name, Ayesha Karim. You know my name was what made me feel special when I was a little girl. Another thing that always made me feel special is the nice gifts I’d get for Christmas and my birthday every year. This is still something I look forward to in my 30s. I will continue to look forward to Christmas, Kwanzaa and my birthdays as I get older. I get such nice gifts from my parents on my birthday and for Christmas and from other relatives. I got money from my grandmother one year. I just love my life. It is a good life. It’s mine. I believe in self-love and loving other people. I am happy I learned to love and accept myself. I would not change that fact for the world or all the money in the world. Nothing compares to me.
My identity is what makes me stand out.
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 Science 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. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents! View all posts by TheAyeshaSite
