Empire State Building

About M. A. Aponte

Published writer, award winning poet, and Social Science educator. My experience ranges beyond academia as a former soldier, Wall Street wealth manager, business owner, and police officer. As a Hispanic who grew up in the “projects” of Queens, New York, I also understand the difficulties that one faces under great challenges that life throws at you. My belief is truly power through education, especially self-education.


Currently working on my first non-fiction novel:

THINK! The Lost Art of Critical Thinking and Understanding the Crazy Early 21st Century
