Her first love was to be an architect.  Her poetry started out as a hobby.  She feels that the gift she has received from God has to be put to good use and reach others.

Born and raised in Brooklyn New York of Guyanese parents, a mother of two, an educator with the New York City Department of Education and has been writing poetry for fifteen years; PANTHER NEWSLETTER SPECIAL GUEST this month is Joanne ‘Black Poet’ Stephen.  I recently hooked up with Joanne to reason with her, about her and her works.  Check out her interview with me here…
