Ramona Maharaj City of Hamilton Fort Lauderdale was mostly uninhabited from the 15th century until the 1890s for various reasons. The native inhabitants declined in population since first meeting Spanish explorers, and white settlers struggled to gain a foothold in the region. The first Fort Lauderdale was constructed in 1838 to help US forces battle the Seminole Indians. The fort was abandoned in 1842 after the war concluded. In 1893, Frank Stranahan opened a ferry across the New River. More people arrived in the area after the Florida East Coast Railroad completed a route through the area in 1896. Fort Lauderdale was incorporated in 1911 and designated the county seat of Broward County in 1915. In the 1920s, people flocked to Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding area during the Florida Land Boom, which ended abruptly in 1926 during one of the worst hurricanes on record, and later the Great Depression.

English classes teach students how to write effectively and to read closely. Both of these skills are often overlooked, but business leaders, lawyers, and journalists all have to be proficient at reading comprehension and writing clearly and concisely. An English degree can be a great precursor to an advanced law degree, a degree in journalism, or an advanced business degree. English majors can take their reading, writing, and editing skills and create their own business if they desire. Freelancers can make excellent wages working for themselves with individual clients in a variety of business settings, including advertising, public relations, and more.

Ramona Maharaj decided to move away from the City of Hamilton to continue her education in the English discipline because she wanted to improve her chances of working as an English professor one day. Maharaj has long dreamt of contributing her thoughts and instruction concerning contemporary American literature.
