Hey, I'm Clarissa!
Durham, North Carolina, United States · Member since June 2012

I'm a student of life. I really enjoy traveling and go as much as I can. I was born and raised in Harlem, New York. Sorry to say that I really don't know much about the other parts of the city.except the Bronx where I lived with my husband and daughter

I have been to Jamaica 4 times and to Uganda in April 2013.

We moved to Durham, NC March of 1991. Since I moved to Durham life has been .....interesting. I discovered that I have talent for words. I have taken writing classes, started a novel (which is sitting in the bottom of my closet). I keep a diary off and on. I have written poems and speeches mostly for friends. I have also discovered what it is like to be a single parent,. I have been divorced since the late 90's; taught myself how to drive a stick shift and what it is like to loose everything and start over .I have graduated from Durham Technical Community College and Shaw University.
Since Feb 2011 the Love of my life has become my grandson. Curious, stubborn and loving. I hope to instill in him a love of travel, books and My Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ.
