My family and I migrated from the island of St. Lucia to the United States with the aspirations of a better and brighter future. After many years of hard work, persistence and sacrifice, I finally managed to attend Medgar Evers College where I am currently pursuing an associate degree in English Literature. I also plan on minoring in Creative Writing. After earning my associate degree, I will transfer to Brooklyn College to continue my studies and earn my bachelor’s.
My future goal is to become an English Professor as well as a Writer. My zeal for English literature and creative writing stems from my love for reading, writing and poetry. It will be very fulfilling for me to help nourish others’ love for literature as well as inspire people to see its significance and beauty. I am also very passionate about this field of work because it will give me a platform to express myself in a very creative and unique way, while accomplishing my lifelong dream.
As a strong, committed student and an active member of my school and community, I know that with my dedication, hard work and more importantly the help and guidance of my Mentor Coach, America Needs You will provide the perfect outlet for my success and professional goals. I am truly grateful to be a 2016 ANY Fellow!
