Who is Lawanda Lee Anderson?
I am the daughter of Larry and Wanda Lee and grew up a major tomboy with my three brothers. Although I was born in Norwood, NC (outside of Charlotte), I lived most of my life in Selma, NC. I graduated with honors from Smithfield-Selma High school and later received my B.A. in Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. On May 16, 2009, I received my Master's degree in Agency Counseling at NC Central University and was hired through Vocational Rehabilitation to assist individuals who have disabilities with finding employment opportunties. In 2010, I started a new chapter in my life when I married the love of my life, Mike Anderson and in 2011, we had our first child (Malachi Elijah Anderson).
How long have you been writing?
Tell us about your interests.
In my spare time I used to enjoy doing the following: Writing and performing poetry, singing, dancing, playing multiple sports, witnessing to the residents inside of the prison and challenging youth to walk in excellence through presentations on sexual abstinence, college preparation and leadership skills. Now that I am married, I still do a few of the things mentioned, but my time is more focused on family. I do enjoy going to the movies, travelling and spending time with my girlfriends
exactly is "The Aspiring Writers Info Session?"
With your poetry, how does
God fit into your writing?
I suddenly noticed that writing poems became a way that God could communicate and minister to me and others. Also, I was able to express my emotions, while addressing issues that were affecting other people. So, ultimately, I see the poems as a witnessing tool, which is my reason for distributing so many copies to people that I meet outside of church.
