About me

Gender FEMALE
Location United States
Introduction I am originally from the beautiful caribbean country of Trinidad and Tobago. I have lived in the US for 11 years, thus my fashion sense is a hybrid of the caribbean and western style. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in Consumer, Apparel and Retail Studies which gives me an in depth look into the intricacies of dress, identity, and culture as it relates to consumer behavior. My passion for fashion and helping individuals develop their identities through attention to their inner and outer selves, make me feel as if I am fulfilling my purpose here on earth :).
Interests I love helping people. I am oftentimes playing the role of a motivator encouraging others to become the best they can be through determination, positive thinking, and trusting God. Other than that I LOVE to shop as it gives me the opportunity to be creative with my outfits. I quench my thirst for information through reading or watching anything that would broaden my perspectives. My interests are multifaceted :)
Favorite Music I am very eclectic when it comes to my music taste. I listen to country, soft rock, dancehall, r&b, soca, calypso, rap, etc. I grew up jamming to soft rock with my sisters. Artistes such as Michael Bolton, Phil Collins, and Lionel Richie were our favorites as teenagers :). Nevertheless, I love music that hits deep in my soul either through the lyrics or through the skillful expression by the vocalist; music categories like R&B, Jazz, and even country have influenced my appreciation for music at one time or the other. My ultimate love is for Caribbean Music! My country's music Calypso and Soca are my favorites! The rhythm carries you into a state of euphoria where your cares are gone for the few minutes of the song. The unity and love this music engenders makes me proud to be a product of it.
