What do you do best?

Being able to sum up and synthesize a situation fairly quickly. Very good instincts.

What makes you the best?

Seeking out those who can help me with an issue and being able to take constructive criticism.

What are your aspirations?

To strive to be better today than I was yesterday.

Biggest Success?

Reading a poem, I wrote for my grandmother to my grandmother in a then recently published book, before my grandmother passed away.

Most Challenging Moment?

This is not a challenging moment, so much as it is a regret. Once, somewhere where I was teaching had a class with too few students and they had to cull students from all the other classes to make up this new class. I sent along a student from my class that I was never able to face again. I have always thought about this student and how s/he must have felt to be the lone student sent out of my class. One of my most challenging and regretful moments.

Motto?

It is better to try at something and fail at trying than not to try at all.

Favorite People/Role Models?

My grandmother, who never saw a mountain she could not climb, is one of my favorite role models. Another favorite role model is my great grandmother who made the most gorgeous patchworks and handmade beautiful things and who seemed to take great pleasure in the simplest things in life. Finally, there is a wonderful woman in Jamaica, Ms. Lynette Wilks, who gave up a professional life in the capital city of Kingston to go back to the rural areas of the island to safeguard and protect endangered butterflies. I wish the island of Jamaica would get it together and give this woman some national award and the recognition she rightfully deserves!

Favorite Places/Destinations?

San Francisco and the Bay Area immediately comes to mind.

Favorite Products/Objects?

My great grandmother’s and grandmother’s patchwork quilts. They are among some of the most precious things I own.

Current Passions?

The Female Sexual Desires Project and ideas around female sexuality and pleasure that I am currently working on as both a creative writer and a visual artist.
