Zilpha's Wiki page

Hello welcome to my Wikidot page.

My name is Zilpha, but my friends call me Theo. Following is my bio:

Zilpha is a student in the Library and Information Studies at Queens College, City University of New York. Although she has always loved books and is a very avid reader, she'll be the first to admit that Library was not her first career choice. She grew up in the Caribbean and their were no libraries or librarians at her grade schools or high school. What she remembers is a mobile van with books that made periodic stops at her grade school and the lady inside who she describes as the "nicest lady she'd ever met." This lady made a great impact on her young mind.

Zilpha had stints as a teaching assistant, and in Government service and foreign affairs which took her to New York where she got married and decided to stay and settle. She has visited some historical world sites like Hiroshima city in Japan, the Taj Mahal in India and the Great Wall of China. Her hobbies are nature study, coin collecting, reading, and going for long walks in the park. She currently works in a library where her earlier memories of the library lady in the mobile van were rekindled as a result of which she enrolled in library school with the hope of becoming an Academic Librarian.

Following is Zilpha's bucket list, not necessarily in that order.

  • Go on a Mediterranean cruise
  • Graduate from Library school
  • Plan an extended family reunion
  • Learn to dance (formally)
  • Visit London and Paris
  • Build a house on my lovely tropical island of Dominica pictured below
