A little about me?

My Daughter Leah & I at home, October 2008


My name is Wellesley Gayle, author and publisher of this little website, www.my-island-jamaica.com.

Yes, I am from JAMAICA, born and raised in a little rural district called Left Hall- in Beeston Spring, Westmoreland.

I attended the Salem All Age school, Manning's High, Northern Caribbean University (NCU), and more recently, Bradford University (UK).

I currently work with an established US fortune 500 company that has an offsite here in Montego Bay, Jamaica - where I now reside with my family.

I love my country, I really do. So much so that I decided to create this website to share my passion with the world.

There is oh so much about this blessed little rock that astounds me everyday; the scintillating beaches, the alluring reggae music, the rich history, the creativity of our people, the world class blue mountain coffee, the variety and love of sports, the hospitality of our people & the delectable food are just a few.

I however, sincerely owe a lot to a company called SBI.

They gave me the inspiration and proved to me that I could do it - I could take this passion for my country (indeed any passion I had)and create a profitable little website.

And that I did!
Not easy, but very simple!

I never hesitate to share this amazing story with my site visitors.

You too are more than welcome to take a look. Click Here to see it.

I do trust you'll find the information here very helpful in your research of our beautiful and unique Caribbean island.

And by the way, if there is anything you need my help with, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for your time and for visiting my site, and please, stay in touch.
