Meet Angelle Barrett of TheBlackGoddess

Today we’d like to introduce you to Angelle Barrett.

Hi Angelle, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I’ve been writing poetry since the 7th grade and I’ve always had an interest in writing. I’ve always wanted to become an author so I began to start writing more poetry. I came up with the name of the book, the chapters, and the names of various poems before writing each poem.

It took me three months in total to write and publish my first book. I truly enjoy writing poetry and spreading words of encouragement. My future is brighter than ever and I cannot wait until my book becomes a New York Times Best Seller.

I am currently in the process of writing three more poetry books and even more!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it has not been a smooth road. I have big dreams of becoming a New York Times Best Selling author, but that does not come easy. Some of the obstacles have been being a full-time graduate student and struggling with the battles of mental health.

Through it all, I still find time to write and try my best to be as consistent as possible.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
My business is being an author and a creative writer. I currently do not have a company but I do plan on owning my own non-profit organization in the future. I am a poet and I specialize in writing for the soul of Black People. The majority of my topics are about my experiences of being a Black Woman, an immigrant, and living in America. I am known for spreading positivity and light through every interaction that I have with individuals. I am most proud of myself for being so driven, headstrong, and committed to being a creative writer. I believe that my personality sets me apart from others because I differ from the antics of my generation. I want my readers to know that through my words, they are seen and appreciated. I also want them to know that they are loved, no matter what.

What was your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory was being in Jamaica. Living in Jamaica was so calm and simple. I loved going to the ocean and spending time with my family. The day that I enjoyed the most is when my family and I took a trip to Dunns River Falls in Jamaica. It was so beautiful and peaceful.
