almost 2 years Barbados Story
Gem of the Caribbean Sea

I grew up in the country-side of Barbados, surrounded by thick accents, animals and hills (Dominicans are outraged when I consider these mounds 'hills' but they ARE, okay?). At age 9, I moved to another part of the country near a gully, where my friends and I would play hide 'n seek and talk about our futures. I remember coming home each day to green monkeys on our front porch. There were no street lights, on our street, only the moon. Everyone knew and loved each other, everyone shared. At about 11, I moved to the busy city, right next to the beach and to the highway. I remember sun kissed skin and going to the beach literally every day. I remember having my first beer on the beach, and throwing pebbles in the clear water. I remember going to my new school and being told my accent meant that I was uneducated. I remember proving that wrong. Our country is small, but it is gorgeous. Each parish is flooded with memories and good times. Today, I am so proud of Bim. I couldn’t have grown up in a warmer, safer place. As we look towards the future, I pray God blesses us with many more wonderful years. Happy Independence, Barbados.
