My book is a "poetic diary" meaning that it is a journal of my life written in poetry!! I have always written poems as a sort of therapy and emotional outlet to reflect on my days' experiences. I,luckily, decided to date the poems as they were written and through my book they chronicle my life's experiences of leaving to go to college, matriculating in a new/challenging environment, experiencing friendships and disappointments! My poetry was particularly helpful in getting me through the rigors of law school by serving as an inspirational reminder that I can make it! Once I began my adult life, you will see how the poems change in style and substance to reveal my thoughts on politics,family,life ,racism, love, the joy of my accomplishments and the valleys of my troubles. Yet, through it all, I was able to reach a pinnacle of my legal career in obtaining an appointment as a Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court ! My poems speak for themselves, the photographs speak for themselves and my book speaks for me!
