I have always had an interest in writing for children. Since I was in my 20s I desired to become a children’s author. Once with NAMI about ten years ago we had this Seussical event in Washington Crossing State park in Titusville, NJ that we went to as an event for the Just Friends social group. I got great feedback on many or most of my assignments for my children’s literature course. I was a bullied hurt little black girl. As a kid I got bullied a lot and teased about my complexion so much. By the time I started going through puberty my skin got really dark. Although it was hard to see as a little girl I always felt happy because the eye doctor and also my grandmother and my great aunts and other people said they loved my eyes. I had 20/20 vision as a little girl.
