She was most recently honored with two Black Weblog Awards – Best New Blog and Best Parenting Blog.
Pascalle Onika Goddard aka “Onika Pascal” is a career savvy supermom-certified Sagittarian-professional introvert-with a funny bone, born in Trinidad, raised in Brooklyn, NY and now residing in Maryland with her 16 year old son. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Medgar Evers College and her Masters of Professional Studies at The George Washington University. In 2008 she self-published a book of poetry entitled, “Collections of a See Through Soul – Portraits,” written under the pen name Onika Pascal. Shortly after, in 2009, she released a second volume of poetry titled, “Collections of a See Through Soul – Bardvillian Symphonies”. She has contributed to Outlish Magazine (online) and eWoman Magazine (online). She hopes to release more literary works in the future.
AlysiaSimone is the founding editor of RewindAndComeAgain.com an online exploration of the Caribbean-American experience. She is also project
manger for Witness Project, an arts based youth initiative that is working to change the culture of violence in Guyana, South America – but her most important role is that of mom. Addressing a roomful of poker-faced Caribbean ministers is a walk in the park compared to the work of raising her two amazingly intelligent yet “headbangingly” frustrating teenage boys in their home in Brooklyn, New York.
