About Me


Travel and study abroad in Europe and South Africa, complete my BA/MA at Columbia University NYC, make a difference, dance like there is no tomorrow, sing and eat good food , continue to create an international newtwork of friends and professionals


Life is a creation. I have an intense passion for traveling, dance and music (from rock to house to classical to jazz) - but it's not what you do but who you do it with. So friends, community and networks are and becoming even moreso important to me. I grew up in Trinidad and Tobago (the best carnival in the world!!!), am now based in New York City but have had short stints in London, Toronto and have spent the last four months in Paris (studying French). I enjoy learning about other cultures and people, LOVE FOOD and a socializing!! I intend to spend half of this year in Europe, take on a community project mid-year,then travel, study and live in Africa/South Africa for the rest of 2011.


Be passionate about life and keep taking risks.
