I had so many deaths in my family over the past couple of years. I feel like now that I decided to become a teacher more people are saying things about me and I don’t feel I’m any less competent than anyone else. I make my own decisions in life. First I think of myself and just being less hard on myself but my therapist told me I’m very smart and I am. Life is what you make it. You only get your one life to live. I’m going to keep fighting this difficult battle with schizophrenia. I know people don’t determine my self worth God does. When I get anxious or sad or someone says something negative about me and I wonder what causes people to always talk shit about me I have learned as someone that has mental problems since I was in high school not to be hard on myself. The first thing I’ll do is get my basic driver examination permit.
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!
