I struggled a lot socially in school like kindergarten through grade 12. I got bullied a lot. I didn’t have many friends but I did have a few friends. I just found myself stressed out a lot even as a kid. It wasn’t until I graduated from college at the age of 34 years old that I could look back on the experiences I had in school and think especially of teachers I had and even professors who were supportive. My memoir teacher liked the memoir I wrote “Tale of three half sisters” for my Advanced Memoir Workshop. My memoir was just over 4,000 words and my memoir professor Dr. Edvige Giunta liked it. She even supported me as a student in her class. It was by far the most positive experience I had in college. I appreciate Dr. Giunta more than anything and I will always feel gratitude toward her my memoir professor. I pray that I can focus on my children’s literature course for the rest of this year. I got an extension from the school until January 2021. I’ll be turning forty next year.
