Note to self: Sometimes, a path appears. Sometimes, you forge one. Either way, keep walking. #MyTestimonie

Happy Saturday, Fam! Just dropping in to share another stop on my journey. 🙂

This week, I began my third semester at Pasadena City College (the alma mater of my shero Octavia Butler, by the way) and I’m slowly forging a path towards my goal to earn a Ph.D. in Sociolinguistics at the University of Southern California!

What does this have to do with my goal to republish my novel, “Address: House of Corrections” as a trilogy for incarcerated girls, you ask? EVERYTHING!

The knowledge I’m gaining will prepare me to become a better teacher for the girls and help me create a well rounded program grounded in sociological imagination that will teach them how to tell their own stories using my novel as an example.

I’m excited and so grateful to my loyal Patreon supporters and I hope to have more publishing updates soon. Thank you!!!!

All Best,

Monice

P.S. If you’re wondering about the pic — I had to share a shot of my new kicks for my new path — a gift I caught on sale, thanks to my supporters, for my new semester. 🙂
