I decided to start to appreciate my natural hair and I decided to stop using hair relaxers. It’s never easy but this is a good decision to have at my age 38. The hair I have is nappy. I am thinking I could have gotten my brain illness from chemicals. The process of chemical hair straightening is what destroyed my hair. I liked the relaxed look but it ruined my hair. I decided to go au naturale. I’m dark and lovely. No turning back!
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!
