That’s why I am committed to seeking out Caribbean people doing great things in my eyes and sharing their stories.

Caribbean Social Media Strategy

A few months after moving to Toronto, I went to a networking event for entrepreneurs. I met some fantastic people, some of whom I am still in contact with today.
