From first loves to first heartbreaks, we used to waitress is a debut poetry collection about youth, love and coming of age as a brown girl in America.

Based on author, Jihan Ramroop's experiences, this poetry memoir follows her from childhood to college. Between glimpses of alcohol and anxiety to generational trauma and healing, this collection shows one girl's journey in being both vulnerable and unapologetic. A nostalgic and cozy poetry collection, we used to waitress, is about learning when to stop waiting and start living.
