I am feeling so much better about myself now that I’m older. I’m looking forward to my fortieth birthday next January 2021. It was a real struggle for me until I almost couldn’t believe when my spiritual awakening occurred in my early 30s until now. I am really amazed at how much happier I am now that I have been having successes with my course with ICL. I was also invited to enter ICL’s poetry contest. My instructor encouraged me to send a poem in to ICL’s poetry contest. Here goes.
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 Sciences 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. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
