I have had successes in my 30s that led me to forge my own path. I participated in poetry slams. I got nominated for four blogger awards in the past two years. I feel like suddenly I became a part of this blogging community. I became more aware of the presence of my higher power (God). I also graduated from NJCU in 2015. I was 34 years old when I got my diploma and got to participate in the commencement exercises early in the morning at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. I am also half way through a course in how to write for children. This is something people say I’m really good at but I won’t be finishing the course until sometime in 2020. I took a leave of absence from the course but now I’m back working on the course again. I am also blogging 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!
