From having my blog receive three blogger award nominations to being an anthologized poet in three or four poetry anthologies to experiences at three Poetry Slams in NJ I have been enjoying my 30s. I have a friend who volunteers with NAMI NJ who accepts a poem from me at least once a year if I submit a poem and she always publishes the poem I send her every year since 2015. It’s been a while that I’ve known this friend. We have a friendship and she is 20 years older than I am. This friend has a 2019 award winning poetry book. I’m so happy for her. I celebrate with her this success and want her to know she is appreciated and cool too!
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!
