The art of diversity through history, human resource development and International business. Having an undergraduate degree in History, a Master's degree in Human Resource development and an advanced diploma in International Business. I'm very passionate and energetic in all my pursuits and will use my talent and time to create a positive outcome and to help people maximize their potential, settle and adjust to life in a new country. I am an avid volunteer both in my home country and here in my community being the Co-founder of I.D.E.A.L.- (internationally diverse and embracing all life) an international student body at my Nova Scotia academic institution. My desire is to empower people through my passage to Canada and be a voice to many who took this first step to explore this wonderful country.


I am Jamaican, hence I am creative, outgoing, dynamic, brilliant and as Jamaicans would say 'likkle but tallawah' which means small in statute but a power house. I enjoy good food, dancing, new adventures and putting a smile on the face of others. I am an avid reading, reading everything from facts to fiction and then in between. My relationship with God is key, being from a Christian country and a follower of Jesus Christ. My migration experience has been thrilling, superb and empowering thus far being a new settler in Canada (under two year). I believed my purpose was not being maximised in my country and I was under-utilized though having a fairly good job and being educated, hence I decided to venture into the unknown and to embrace new challenges. To my surprise however, I had more victories and successes than failures. I met incredible people who imparted their time, treasures and talents to make my transition easier and more manageable. The climate was a challenge at times but I knew what to expect and already conditioned my mind to endure it. To my surprise however, the winters in Nova Scotia has been better than anticipated. I look forward to permanently settling and also contributing towards nation building here in Canada and my home country Jamaica.
