I am 100% committed to my life’s purpose of ADDING VALUE to the lives of children/youths through mentoring and nutritional outreach programs in Jamaica.
I am also grateful that I attract and meet people who will assist me with making our children/youths healthy, happy and wise!!
WHERE IT BEGAN!
In 2008 while working as a radio broadcaster with Westmoreland Broadcasting Company Limited, owners and operators of Vybz 96.3 FM, I was sent to do a live broadcast at a youth forum about peer counselling at Frome Technical High School in Westmoreland, Jamaica.
I was so impressed with the youth presenters that immediately I thought of inviting them to be my co-broadcasters for one hour on my Saturday morning show. I was crazy enough to allow nine youths (7 from Frome Technical High and 2 from my alma mater, Manning’s School also located in Westmoreland, Jamaica) to join me in studio every Saturday to empower and entertain youths who listened my show.
The Teen Vybz show ended in 2010 when I left the radio station, but I can tell you that the bond I created with those youths was a very strong one and to date they have such love and respect for me…and they are all doing well because of their commitment to be the best in whatever they do. I love them!!
After the show ended I was distracted from my commitment to empower and entertain our youths so that they can be healthy, happy and wise…yep I was more focused on just making money, which I now think is selfish as that was only serving me…not that I was doing a very good job of it anyways.
But fast forward to October 2019, something deep down has been tugging at me to do something, anything to help young people cultivate a healthy lifestyle and to meet with them informally and formally to remind them that they are worthy and deserving of the best of everything in life!
Now, I intend to start…don’t know how yet and my finances is not even in a place to do one iota, but I am sure the UNIVERSE will guide and bless me with the resources that I need to make this happen. Yep I know it will happen.
I am not a biological mother, but I see what is happening around me…lack of love, lack of nutritious meals, lack of inspiration, lack of motivation. lack, lack, lack and I am ready and willing to do everything in my powers to help our young people.
Please keep following my blog for updates about what I am doing to make our youths healthy, happy and wise . Blessings to you all and please join me by taking care of youths in your home, community and country. One love!!!
