I am an Ojibway native who lives off reserve. My father chose to leave at a young age to join the armed forces. He reached the top of his rank when he retired. I was always very proud of him. He was my rock. I do have relatives that live on reserve in northern Ontario. In fact, my first cousin is the Chief. I had a wonderful loving Irish mother whom I miss terribly. I grew up in a very large family of eight. Four girls and four boys. I have a beautiful daughter whose father never really bothered with her but I was blessed to have met and married a man who has loved her and raised her like his own. I went to university when I was in my forties and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a Concentration in English. I went on to Teacher`s College and got my degree to teach kindergarten to grade six. I love to write. Especially poetry. You`ll notice that most of my poems rhyme because it just comes so natural to me. I have a hard time not rhyming poems and I really don`t know why. I love being with FanStory and I love the people here. They are very special. Like a family.
