Dedication

DEDICATION

My poetry is dedicated to my late paternal grandmother. Grandma Lavada challenged me to study multiple subjects, read a variety of books, and have faith in God. She encouraged me to get a good education and excel in life. Unfortunately, she passed away before I completed my Bachelor’s degree, and went on to graduate school.

Thank you Grandma! I miss you!
