I was blessed to have successes with what I love more than anything else writing. There are so many female authors I just love including Alice Walker, Sandra Cisneros and Jean Rhys. I love the prose of Jamaica Kincaid. Jamaica Kincaid was the model author my memoir writing teacher told me about and also Edwidge Danticat. I found my happiest days were when I was working on my memoir and my course to write for children. I was told I seemed to have a gift to write for children once. I enjoy writing in different genres but I would love to be able to write for children and make a little career out of it.
I feel like I was born to stand out.
I am a Black Guyanese woman. I'm thirty nine years old. 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 Science since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's lit course. I love reading memoirs. I also do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson.
