Of all of my roles poet and writer has to be my favorite role. Getting good feedback on my poems I’ve been able to publish or on my memoir writing and my course that I’m taking teaching me how to write for children I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I got my first blogger award nomination at thirty seven years old. I’ll be thirty nine years old in three days. I just love being a writer. Ideally I would have loved to get my Master’s degree in Creative Writing in Poetry. I got in to two Cave Canem poetry workshops. I managed to go only one of the poetry workshops I got in to. Cave Canem is competitive too. I feel good about that too. I was asked to write a letter in favor of Cave Canem and I did with a little help from my uncle. I am the happiest writer around. It feels so good to have four nominations for awards for my blog. I’m thrilled.
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!
