About Me

I am pretty engaging with most people and always open to hearing persons’ views and life experiences. I love animals, science and social justice and studied to become a vet. I loved it (clinical) but then had to reflect and realize that I always wanted to work to make a huge difference for others regarding diseases so went into public health for infectious diseases (what a time to do that in this world 😂😅)

I’m open to heading out for drinks and love gin, beers, wine, rum, whiskey but view vodka as a mortal enemy.

I have a very dry sense of humor and a love for caffeine. I think the world would be a better place if caffeine was flowing from taps (or Caribbean rum).

Open to Surfers who are willing to exchange aspects of culture.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I’m very interested in improving my French and Spanish. I previously studied them but over the years I lost my passion for languages and trying to reignite this.

I’m also a strong believer that we’re here to learn from each other from the minute we’re born to when we die. I think it’s quintessential to understand and appreciate the Who? Why? When? Where? How? What? Regarding the people around me and in this world.

I believe most of our global conflicts and even within countries stem from persons not being open to meeting people where they are, and being open to learning and actively listening.

Interests

Jogging, Reading, Hiking, Art, Films

Music, Movies, and Books

Almost all genres of music except heavy metal. Love reggae, dancehall, early 90s rap, and music from the 70s and 80s. Choice depends on the mood.

Huge fan of Hemingway- The Sun Also Rises and In Our Time. Still reading A Moveable Feast.
I am a huge fan of Fredrik Backman’s works- some of them made me pause 🥲
Appreciated All The Light We Cannot See and Sister Outsider. Still have mixed views on To Kill a Mockingbird…

Caribbean writers such as Marlon James, Edwidge Danticat, Sam Selvon, George Lamming and V. S Naipaul.

Will also read social perspectives on infectious diseases and emerging diseases.

As you can tell, I love to read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It’s hard to say. Would have to put it down as the times I have done animal rescues. I cannot put any rescue above the other.

Teach, Learn, Share

Perspectives on diseases and society, Trinbagonian culture and history and thoughts on social justice.
