I graduated from college at age 34 and I am proud of it.

I feel happy that I am still having successes in my 30s. I feel relevant but I’m very proud to say I was 34 years old when I got my bachelor’s degree from NJCU and that is one of the proudest achievements of my life. I think age should not be a factor. If a graduate is in her 30s, 40s, 50s or even older the completion is the thing that matters not your age. The whole point of being able to attend your graduation and being able to walk across the stage is the thing not the age you are but that you did it!

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!
