My inspiration comes from Phillipians 4:13; I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Key Initiatives:
Prior to working at the MoEYI, I would have been involved in youth development through volunteerism; which includes serving as a Youth Mentor with Called to Lead Jamaica, a non-profit youth-led organization since 2017.
 
This facilitated mentorship of ‘at risk’ high school students; as well as being vastly involved at the community level, being impactful and creating change.
 
 
Since joining the team as a Youth Empowerment Officer, I have participated in, and led a number of youth development initiatives. These include:
  • Youth Month 2020 (Around the Table Talk Discussion – that facilitated empowered through knowledge of Entrepreneurship)
  • Capacity Building and Training Workshops (which includes collaboration with Heart NSTA Trust) A series of Empowerment Sessions geared at youth development.
 
Key Areas of Interest in Youth Development:
  • Youth Participation/Involvement

Message to Youth:
Believe in yourself and your own abilities; you can do anything you want to do; through planning, perseverance and commitment. – Remembering: I (you) can do ALL things through Christ who gives me (you) strength!”
