I love the arts. I am a poet I went to a few poetry slams. I believe socialization is a major factor in the life of children from childhood all the way up through college. I always wrote poetry as a little girl. The schools I went to were good schools but they were public schools. One day in the summer of 2016 I entered this competition put on by the VSA of NJ called the NJ wordsmith competition. I liked the experience. I had a guy I was dating take a few photos of me and my mom and my stepfather Neil. I always loved writing poetry since I was nine or ten. For someone who is just starting to journal or write consider writing in a journal. I graduated from college at the age of thirty four. I had good and bad experiences in college but for years I volunteered with an organization known as NAMI, and I will continue to. The wordsmith competition ended in 2016. I remember them saying it was the 22nd annual competition. I met a young woman who has been one of the winners and we made small talk. I know sometimes it really does help to write your thoughts and feelings down. I kept journals for years and I always felt like writing was a way of healing too.

I read a book by author Louise DeSalvo called Writing as a way of healing.
