Deptford Twp.  – Life after high school graduation brings change, isn’t always easy, and can make the rite of passage into adulthood something to contemplate. Rebecca Grubb of Franklinville, a communications major at Gloucester County College (GCC), decided to put her musings down on paper.
 In October, Grubb was one of eight authors to have her thoughts published in “Lamplight: A Golden Light Anthology” by Chamberton Publishers in California. Her inspirational poem “God is Always” ponders the question of life, faith and how to be true to oneself. Originally started as an article, Grubb heard about the poetry contest from a friend and decided to complete the two page motivational piece as a poem. The GCC sophomore’s poem reflects on a time when she was “feeling down because life is hard” and unsure of the future as she entered college. The anthology is currently available on Kindle for $3.99.
            “I needed to turn my attitude around and live life, instead of being whiny. It’s important to find out who you are and then be true to yourself,” said Grubb, who tries not to come off as preachy in her writings. “Writing makes me happy and that’s what life is all about — manifesting your dreams.”
With aspirations of becoming a novelist, Grubb plans to transfer to Rowan University after graduating from GCC and study either English or communications.
Gloucester County College’s 250-acre campus is located on Tanyard Road in Deptford, just off Exit 56 of Route 55.
