Finding Your Purpose:

I have obtained this degree of Master of Science in Mental Health and Wellness to open my options to find a better career and to become an even better poet and I have decided to attend Grand Canyon University located in Arizona because it is a Christian University. I have already found my purpose and it was at 15 years old writing poetry. The author started writing poetry at 15 years old. It was on the second floor of the auditorium of Bethany Community Church. It is located at 36-40 South Broad Street, Elizabeth, New Jersey 07202. It was a specific event organized by the Youth Group for Valentine's Day called the Red Affair. I have already published three Poetry books. If one needs more information, refer back to the author's first book with 35 poems called: "The Legacy of My Poems: The Psalms of A King" which is available on Amazon. You can also refer to the author's second book which was an extension of the first book with 39 poems called: "My Psalms" which is available everywhere in Barnes & Noble bookstores; everywhere online which can be Kindle or Paperback; and depending on the website, then you can get a discount. This third poetry book entitled "A Beautiful Life Well Lived" contains great, long, and specific details with care instructions. It is available on Amazon available. This book is also available on the international market. It will be an easy read from a list of 30 declarations of proclamation poems. My inspiration comes from when I can't go to sleep at night; then after I write a poem, I usually go to sleep like a newborn baby. Many people have come to the conclusion that I get my inspiration from God through His son Jesus Christ because I write about Him a lot in many of my past poems and current poems.

Author of 3 books so far. Am working on my 4th. Poet. Call cellphone at 908-764-3555 be booked for shows and/or performances. If I don't answer, please leave a message. I am an Author and Poet and my 3 books so far that I have published can be found at my website at Mackenzythepoet.com and Amazon. That's my own business. MACKENZYTHEPOET LLC is on May 5, 2021 is when my business was registered with the State of New Jersey and the United States government thanks to DIGIMO LLC. PS. I do not collect any sales atax. Even though the companies that I am with right now take most of the profit. That is why if you are a book company that is going to pay me in advance, give me royalties, have the book will be wherever books are sold like Walmart, K-Mart, have the actual physical copy at Barnes & Noble, have the book available in the international market, schedule me for many interviews, and it will be at at the all the Public Libraries; if you agree with all of that, then give me a call.

My advice for upcoming, or current, graduates is if you have dreams, then follow or go for it; but put GOD or YAHWEH first through HIS SON JESUS CHRIST or YESHUA with the guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT like a DOVE. That is why I am seriously thinking of running for political office in the city/town and state where I live which is Rahway, New Jersey, but I don't know when.

If Brazil is considered Latino or Latina/Hispanic even though they speak Portuguese and are based from the Portuguese culture. In that case, then Haiti is Latino or Latina/Hispanic too even though they speak Haitian Creole/French . From now on I'm checking Latino/Hispanic as my race.

Thank You Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for paving the way for me as an immigrant from Haiti; even though I was raised in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
