How did your childhood prepare you for your job today?
My childhood was challenging; a lot of hard work. My childhood taught me how to be humble, how to live with little. It taught me how to work as a team cause I grew up with all my siblings. At an early age, I was already planting cucumbers and pepper to be sold at the market.

Sometimes we have Pep-talks and that's where I practice. I enjoy doing it very much. I also look up quite a number of motivational speeches on the internet, my favorite being Tedx.
Describe your first car and what you loved or hated most about it.
The only good thing about my first was that I could say that I had a car. My first car (Laugh out loud). My first car hated me. My first car was a car from hell. With my car, my mechanic’s number had to be on speed dial. I would need him ever so often. I got more trips to the mechanic than good use from the car. I got stranded more often than not; the car would fail when I needed it the most. I got burnt on my face from the car overheating.

What embarrassing mistake have you made that has taught you a lesson?
The last lesson I learned was “Do Not buy a used MacBook from EBay.” I purchased a MacBook from eBay and when it got here it had a password, a dead battery and a bad hard drive cable which made it useless. I then paid over $700 to crack the password and fix the hard drive problem. Just bought a new battery and charger for the laptop, and then finding out after, that the MacBook has a bad logic board.

Share something funny or endearing about your pet.
I have one dog and many cats at home; all came from neighbors homes and voluntarily became my pets. I didn’t chase then away. I just take care of them. I can't deal with all the new kittens though. They're like hey I found a nice place, let’s all go there. My home is now becoming overcrowded with kittens.
What's your guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is typing, researching, responding to emails while I’m at work as a bank teller. I put a lot of my energy into Soul O Bliss Entertainment, so every chance I get; I’m busy putting in work to make my dream come true.

In St Lucia, we do not have yearbooks. I know what they might have said, though. I was a class clown. I was a good Dj. (I Dj’ed at school also).

I speak around people that I am comfortable with.
