I had a job at the local community college for three years. I found out the first day that I was enjoying the work I was doing as a mentor. I thought of my experiences just working with the students in the program called D.R.E.A.M. acronym for developing real expectations for achieving mastery. I really established a rapport with the students. I feel like most of the students in the program seemed comfortable with me. I felt great especially when Dr. Onaitis who was the counseling specialist at Mercer offered me the opportunity to give back to Mercer. I felt great just being able to give back to my alma mater and creating my own success story. I was a Mercer alumna and I had some problems there but Mercer is a good school and most people are approachable and nice. I don’t think you can be free of problems they go everywhere you go.

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!
