I am from the plush rural countryside of Jamaica known as St. Thomas, but moved to the UK in 2010. I firmly believe in God and entered into the church at the age of 19, He has remained consistent in my life even when I was inconsistent to Him.
I was first trained as a teacher in Jamaica but found it difficult to find work with my diploma in the UK, so I entered the world of Social Care. I gained a Diploma in that field. I left that sector behind after moving from Hampshire to London and worked in customer service for 5 years. I required a change and love the idea of what Human Resources offered, therefore, I completed my BSc (Hons) in Human Resources Management. I enjoyed my HRM classes because of the passion that our lecturer displayed, the knowledge and willingness to help us learn drew me in.
I love to be creative in my spare time, especially in writing, poetry & stories, and any other way that I can use to express myself. I also use prayer, the Word of God and affirmations to keep my headspace active in a positive manner.
My favourite time of the day is speaking with my family in Jamaica. My family is important to me because they keep me grounded. The single most important person to me outside of the collective body of my sisters and God is my mother. She is my shoulder to lean on and my strength.
I also have friends and cousins that I been in my corner since childhood and remains my constant source of encouragement through my rough patches. They are also my source of fun and frolic and helps me to enjoy my visits to Jamaica even more.
I still feel the pull towards learning and development and after participating in some courses created by a superb individual Joy Randolph, I decided to stop being bored at my desk and actively seek a position that will bring me joy and give me a sense of helping a company achieve and give highly sorted after skill.
I hope you find my blog engaging, helpful and fun in some way or another.
