As a little girl I got teased a lot about my skin color. Now that I’m older all I try to do is reinforce all of the compliments or even positive traits I have to always think about the positive aspects of my life situations and try more to dwell less on the negative aspects though they may seem to linger I tell myself “enjoy things while the happiness lasts and try to let the past go.
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. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
