Project Coordinator 

Studio 174

For an internship a group of over twenty of us coordinated a project called 'Art Up Downtown'. Our aim was to improve and promote the aesthetics and ideologies about the city. To do this we created documentaries and public awareness campaigns to allow those closest to the city to tell their stories and inspire other who are further away. Because Studio 174 is an art studio we had to promote it as a media entity to build our credibility. 

Education

Education
Sep 2011 - May 2014

Bachelor of Arts Degree, Journalism 

Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication , University of the West Indies, Mona 

CARIMAC taught me a lot of lessons. Many of these lessons such as in television, radio and print, helped develop my journalistic skills but the best lessons were the life lessons I learned that have significantly improved my life and my outlook of life. 

Sep 2009 - May 2011

Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations 

If you want your daughter to learn all the essentials about being a lady, lessons that will stick, send her to St. Hugh's High School. High school was the first place I learned that staring at someone is poor manners, that you never slurp your tea because its rude. This was a truly enriching experience and studying subject in the arts, also made me into a rounded individual.
