The Unfolding of My Dreams!


WOW!! This is my attempt at wetting my foot in the fashion industry as a designer. I am proud of what I have accomplished already but I believe that this, so far is my proudest moment. Two of my closest friends and I have started a clothing line, Fyuuzhan Kalekshan.

When I was growing up, I never dreamed of a career in fashion and perhaps I still don't. Then how did I land into fashion's bosom you might ask? I am a very creative person; have always been and I suppose that the creative 'gods' have ordered my destiny to bring me to this path. For the philosophically minded, if you think that I am a determinist, then perhaps I am. With an already written script, life is all about improvising. That bit of philosophical verbiage aside, I guess following my creative tendencies is what has led me to this point because fashion and designing are creative processes.

Fyuuzhan Kalekshan is Jamaican spelling for "Fusion Collection" and we are about refashioning the fabric of culture, as our tagline suggests. We take all the different cultural influences that inform the Caribbean identity, add a few contemporary, trendy touches and turn them into sophisticated, wearable, edgy pieces.

"They need to get their priority in order."

"They do not have money to send their children to school but they have time to put in hairstyle!"

"I am not sorry for them at all. They too wicked."

These are among the value statements we make against people living in economically depressed conditions. We speak with such contempt when it comes to the poor and how they "adjust their priorities." We, with our well-thinking selves, impose upon those we presume ourselves to know better than, a set of values and priorities we "know" to be good for them, so that they can get their lives in "order".

It was from this position of "awokeness" and perhaps being "well-intentioned", then President of the West Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Pastor Glen Samuels, spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in 2016. He did so to great chorus, as his audience erupted in laughter and loud applause, approving what was a v…

The Wicked Woman We Love to Hate!

Choose a Caribbean island - any one. There's a mother who's just beat her child with the first thing that her hands fall on. The Caribbean is inundated with narratives of mothers who dare not spare the rod and spoil the child - mothers who dig up ants nest and put their child to kneel in it, on a grater with their hands tied behind their back; mothers who use a hot iron to burn the hand of their thieving child; mothers who go into schools to box up the disrespectful child for answering back teacher and bringing shame to her name.
These are the things that Caribbean mothers do. They do this, not necessarily because they are wicked, but in the name of discipline.

We are a people who have learned violence. It's become part of our social DNA. Our parents learned that violence was how transgressors are taught to do better and behave better. They learned such violence from their parents, and their parents from theirs and their parents from the plantation. The whip is what we le…


Social Media, and in particular twitter, has become a space for spewing caustic and vitriolic effluent at people with whom we disagree. I am sometimes amazed at how people feel so empowered and emboldened sitting behind a screen to descend into the bowels of utter nastiness to express dissent to something that someone else posted. It is worse now that we have 280 characters instead of 140. It means that the nastiness is times two. But social media can be and has been used as a source of good. I have been the beneficiary of deep friendships and formed a formidable network of people who have supported and pushed me along in my professional and personal life.Yet, we do not hear many stories about the power and reach of social media. In this post, I want to speak about a quiet Superhero that I encountered on social media.

I had been working in three vulnerable communities in the last couple of years on a urban disaster risk reduction project being implemented by Habitat for Humanity Jamai…
