Bad manners

Most memorable moment?
When I did a study abroad program at York University, Toronto in 2018

Your most embarrassing moment?
I have many because I am extremely clumsy, But I almost fell down on a runway one time. The floor was uneven and I lost balance. I looked like a drunk chicken trying to catch my balance.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?
I buy an unnecessary amount of plants, my house is becoming a small jungle

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
An actress

Where would you most like to be right now?
I would love to be on a beach in Australia right now.

Your Dream Job?
An actress on screen.

What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
I quite enjoy surfing!

What silly or funny thing makes you afraid or creeps you out?
Crickets and roaches! I hate them

If you were to end up in jail, what might be the reason?
Probably for murder but only in self defense!

How would you like to be remembered?
As a happy go lucky girl who got what she set out to achieve

One word or phrase that describes you: Wonky/ oddball

What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
That life is short and unpredictable. Live in the moment and stop worrying about what you can’t control

What’s the worst and best thing about being female?
Worst thing would have to be that I never 100% feel safe in public places. I am always very anxious and alert. I can never relax or feel like my life is not in some sort of danger. The best thing about being female I believe is the resilience we possess. No matter how much the world may kick us down we always get back up and fight harder and stronger than before.

Finish this sentence: “Don’t let anyone….” Tell you that you can’t achieve what you set out to do.

What motivates you?
I have a drive and a passion in me to do what everyone tells me I cannot do. I love proving people wrong and proving to myself that I can achieve anything I put my mind to.

What do you love about being a Trini (Girl)?
Not only am I a Trini girl but I’m an island girl! I wouldn’t be me without the beach! If you can’t find me, I’m probably chilling on the north coast with my favorite people!

What advice would you give a younger girl?
The world is going to tell you that you can’t do what you want to do because of where you came from, who you are, your skin colour and so much more and I just want to tell you that they are wrong! And you will be celebrated for your culture and your talent and the world needs you!
