I know it took being alone with myself for me to get more comfortable as I am and being able to say I really like myself. I was bullied a lot a child. I don’t wish to get revenge with my bullies and naysayers or the people that never cared for me. It’s their loss. At almost forty years of age I don’t seek revenge. The more compliments I go the more people wished me well the more I thought wow this is a good outcome. I don’t want to bring up the past. I am here now and I am so grateful to my supporters. I love being a writer too. I will be spending my time finishing up my ICL course. I want to revise a few assignments and finish strong giving myself more time with my last three assignments. I was given a generous extension too until next January 2021. I will actually be turning forty too next January 2021.
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!
