JAMAICAN BORN & BRED

by RENATE PURANDA
(Jamaica)

I am a Jamaican and I'm proud to be Jamaican. What I love most about my little island home is that we may be a little dot on the map but we are big in heart; we are right there at the top with all the other huge countries in everything that we set out to do.

Be it ice hockey, bob sledding or whatever it may be we are right there at the top and that is what sets us apart; we got guts, we got heart and that is what makes me proud of my homeland Jamaica.

Wellesley's Note
Hi Renate,

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, you are right on the money; When I met with June and her daughter recently those were some of the very same things we discussed.

Yes, Jamaica probably cannot be seen on the world map easily, but our people truly ensures that we gets noticed, even the bad apples :-)

By the way, did you know that once upon a time, our own Port Royal was once declared the wickedest city in the world? Yup. I have that in my Jamaican facts page.

Anyway, away with that :-) We are indeed a special place; blessed in so many ways: the culture, the delectable food, sports (athlethes, cricketers are easy examples) and of course the beaches and the beautiful tropical climate!

Travelling overseas a few times helped to cement that in my head, even despite the social challenges we face.

It was awareness, love and passion for my country that I created this website as well, and I phrased the tagline "Sharing the uniqueness of Jamaica with the world".

And so, it is really nice getting feedback like yours on my website from fellow Jamaicans and Jamaican enthusiasts.

So, thanks again Renate for taking the time to share with us. You have a great rest of the day my friend.

P.S. By the way, what did you make of that article you read that showed the ranking of Jamaica's high school?
