    The poem, luna, was written about a waitress I knew who was waiting tables in order to put herself through college; she was extremely success-driven; however, at the time I knew her, she was working several weekly shifts, such to be able to stay in school. As an undergraduate student, I don’t know if I would’ve been able to have done that; however as a graduate student, in order to afford to stay in school, I was forced to work. This is the reason why it took me longer to take a Master’s degree then it did for me to take a Bachelor’s.

    Before beginning to work at the University of Maryland, I worked on the community college level, at Howard Community College and Dundalk Community College; this was before the advent of the Community College of Baltimore County consolidation.
