I’ve had my share of people that didn’t like me but in my 30s I have been having the best experience just being able to be myself and treat myself good and knowing for sure that I am just as good as anybody else. I need to know that on the inside and I do know that now. As a little hurt black girl I was victimized regularly and bullied badly as a child. I always indentified with people who told me they had not had the easiest life experience but more and more I’ve grown to like my life and even the volunteer work and part time work I do. I have been working part time as a Mentor for the DREAM program at Mercer County College. I feel like I’m an asset there and I just love working there and being a mentor.
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!
