People gave me compliments and I started to feel better about myself after maybe turning 30 or 31. I felt good about being me for the first time in my life really. I told myself “Esha you are nice too.” I know sometimes even if people compliment you most people don’t realize that they need to look within if they want to build their confidence as a person. I had a difficult adolescence. I was a little girl when a female teacher than liked me skipped me two grades. I was one of the students in her school and she liked me. I had a few nice experiences in college but I realized I could have done better but the way I procrastinate is crazy. I now focus on taking one class a semester and I just devote my free time to reading a few chapters of a book. I read a book a month. I’ve read ten books in the last year including Issac Mizrahi’s memoir. It’s really a good book so far.
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!
