I was always kind of picked last in school from elementary all the way up to college. I felt horrible about it. I hated gym class. I always got critiqued by adults who were in my life. I never felt like I was able to trust people in my life. I have certain things I just keep to myself. I keep journals too. When I experienced rejection from the other kids it hurt me really badly but now I feel like the success of my blog makes me happy. I am hoping to be able to revise and publish my memoir by 2021 too. I’ll be turning forty that year and I’d love to be able to publish my memoir Ayesha’s Story: The Schizophrenia Memoirs.
I tell people my story from bullied kid to loving and accepting myself now in my late 30s.
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

I was bullied in my school years too so I completely relate to this. You go girl!
I am glad someone could relate to what I shared.
