My name is Pamela C. Nwokeji. I am an African American poet and author of “Lilac Bush”. This work is a combination of a poetic memoir and concerns on the societal state of African American culture today. I was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. I currently work as a Data Engineer. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems and a Master’s Certification in Database Technology. Also, I am a licensed Microsoft Professional. I have an amazing husband and, together, we have four adult children. In my book, I tell of joyful experiences growing up in Roxbury. I also describe negative experiences which have directly affected my loved ones and myself. I share these poems with readers in hopes that they will be a catalyst for change in the lives of others. Through my poetry, I encourage readers and lead them to a path of success through education, hard work, and perseverance. I also share my spiritual journey and the strength and encouragement obtained through my relationship with God.
