Program Manager

Africana Studies

With my degree in Africana Studies and Creative writing, I have become a published writer with two books under my belt. I have a children's book centered on an African Folktale and a book of poetry. I am working on a novel. The book talks about growing up in California as a Person of Color. It is a fictionalized memoir of my years growing up in the 1960s and 1970s.

I was also hired by Pima County Health Department as an administrative support specialist, and after a year in this position, I was promoted to Program Manager. My degree in Africana Studies has helped me learn how to interact with people of different races and cultural backgrounds.
