I am trying to appreciate my family and friends more. I think of God. I think of Him healing me. My life is not perfect but my life doesn’t necessarily have to be perfect for me to appreciate it. I have been publishing poems in a publication at NAMI the organization I have volunteered for over ten years now. I got really comfortable with myself as I am. Bruno Mars a new recording artist has this song Just The Way You Are. I love it “when I see your face there’s not a thing I would change ’cause girl you’re amazing just the way you are…” I have always been the girl who was nice but not enough to get the man I like or the job I apply for but I really genuinely like myself.

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.
