Writing is something she has always done and will always do. She is a scholarly article writer, editor, and blog/social media manager for multiple publications at Suffolk Law School. She enjoys all forms of social networking and blogging but her true passion lies in creative fiction and poetry writing. Topic areas range from legal issues affecting education policy, high technology, and social media, to spirituality, business, health, and entertainment.
Roxanne A. Stokes was born and raised in New York City. She insists that writing is "in her blood" since she shares her love of writing with both of her parents who wrote and published poetry and nonfiction in the 1970s.
In 1997, her work was chosen to be published by The New York Daily News at the tender age of 11. Since then she has had goals of being a published poet and author of fiction and nonfiction prose.
Roxanne earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in Philosophy from Smith College and recently earned her Juris Doctor degree from Suffolk Law school.
She has taken on further writing opportunities while in law school by earning an "Honorable Mention" award for her Legal Writing Memo and Oral Advocacy Skills. In 2012, she became a staff member of the law school's Journal of High Technology Law (JHTL) where she also served as Blog Editor, editing and publishing several blog entries. In 2013, she published a book review for JHTL. She also published a scholarly article for the law school's new student-run publication, Bearing Witness, a journal on law and social responsibility. In 2014, her note was published by the Journal of High Technology Law and can be found on LexisNexis and Westlaw databases.
She welcomes the opportunity to write guest blog entries and online articles, or to edit scholarly work to be submitted for publication.
Roxanne always looks for ways to serve others from a young age and continues to do so through involvement in her church, in Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and by mentoring youth in her community.
