I took a few selfies on my phone. I have been working at my alma mater Mercer since January 2016. I was unable to work and go to school with the difficult mental illness I have. It was really hard. I have poems in four poetry anthologies. I got three blogger award nominations. I wrote a memoir but I need to revise it. I have done some things I’m really proud of and I’m still seeing opportunities come my way. I remind myself that I’m okay and I have a good life despite my illness. I even had a poem published on schizophreniapoetry.com on this website.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my late 30s. 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 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!
