The experience of being nominated boosted my self esteem.

I like being able to have success as a writer. I wasn’t able to get into any of the six Master’s in Creative Writing programs I applied to. I hoped I would get into NYU’s graduate school but I wasn’t accepted. I was able to get into NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies back in 2006 but I didn’t decide to go and I went with NJCU. I had some great things happen to me there including getting $200 put on my Gothic Card to spend any way I wanted in the campus bookstore or on food or the vending machines. I feel like that was something nice to get chosen after filling out a survey I got from NJCU in the mail. I didn’t have a lot of close friends but I had the coolest experience taking Memoir and Advanced Memoir with Dr. Giunta. Dr. Giunta was so kind to me and supported my memoir writing during my last two semesters at NJCU. I will always remember her kindness toward me. She has the best teaching style of any professor I’ve had during my time at NJCU. Her husband Dr. Fausty and her made a big difference in my life by liking my memoir. I also had a cool experience getting nominated four timesĀ  for four blogger awards in less than 2 years and I couldn’t be happier!
