I started writing poetry in the 5th grade. I am 36 years old and I still write poetry. I have a poem published in the September 2017 NAMI Mercer newsletter. My poem is called Post WRAP 2017 poem. I am hoping that next January 2018 I will be publishing another poem in the newsletter. I will wait to hear from Miss Maddy Monheit. She always lets me know if I have a poem in the NAMI Mercer newsletter. I have been published for almost five years in the NAMI Mercer newsletter. I plan to continue writing poetry in my 40s and 50s!
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. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents! View all posts by TheAyeshaSite
