All About J.W.Growing up, Jacqueline would tell stories, literally. She would lie and her friends would believe her and she figured she could get by with lies, until she started writing in 5th grade. When she wrote a poem about Martin Luther King, no one believed she had written it. "This is Good" were the words she heard after writing a story that same year and she was shocked that her teacher had something good to say. From then on, she began to believe in herself.
