The Marcus Garvey Way

My New Found Journey
“The Marcus Garvey Way Foundation”
One God, One Nation One Education

What does it means to be truly educated? Why would they listen to me?

Ms. Sutton replies, “consistency.” What then really is my purpose in life? What legacy is the legacy i would want to leave behind? I am in love with my beautiful island but still it has scars too big for me to cover.

I wish i could just blame the government and say that it’s their fault that we are poorly educated and we’ve been indoctrinated years ago and now the virus is in our genes. Truly this doesn’t determine our fate, our destiny.

There are many voices to be heard but are silenced because of our qualifications, our status in life, the place where we grew up and the amount of money we have in the banks.

I believe I've chosen a very noble profession and all I've ever wanted to do was to serve my country.

To give back to my nation and to inspire as many as i can. It took Grace Hamilton over 20 years before she could build a women empowerment foundation and to be able to give back to the society. You see money is power, with money she can do whatever she wants.

My teacher said to me, “ Why wait? Do it now!” I love a good challenge and to me it seemed like a very good one. She inspired me in that moment to pursue my dreams just like how Marcus Garvey inspired me to believe in myself and my nation.

Then I thought to myself maybe, just maybe i can make a difference after all. Thus my journey begins.

I wanna be remembered: not for the money or the fame, but for the knowledge that i shared, the legacy that I left behind and for the light that I shed on some persons dark paths.

I wanna be remembered as the voice for the voiceless, the change in Jamaica and the girl who exceeded everyone’s expectations for her. Now that’s a legacy.
