Greetings my fellow poets! My name is Jessica Gershon and this is my fourth year participating in The Poetry Marathon. I just graduated with my BS in psychology and I plan on becoming a poetry therapist after I receive my Masters. I spend most of my time in my beautiful garden but I also enjoy creating things, riding my bike, and traveling to places in nature. I like to stray away from the city and crowds. I am in love with art, music, and nature. I believe hugs make you live longer. This year, I hope to make some new poetry marathon friends and maybe even land my dream job, who knows?
