At the age of 9 I left New York and travelled down to the Caribbean and settled in the peaceful Island of Anguilla that I fell in love with dearly. While in Anguilla I attended the Valley Primary School and went on to the Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive High School. After three years of switching back and forth among classes, not sure of which class I really wanted to do, after numerous lectures from teachers, finally I switched into arts.
It was then and here where people including myself discovered that I was artistically skilled.
Two long years of painting and drawing and so many accomplishments lead to better things. In 1996 I was encouraged to enter an art competition that I did not obtain a place for, but I was not giving up. The following year I was compelled to enter another art competition that was held by the tourism department but unfortunately they cancelled the art competition until another year. In 1998 I entered another competition entitled the "Hidden Beauty of Anguilla". With a sure mind that I was going to get a place, it happened, I obtained second place and they liked my drawing so much that they even made it into a stamp.
In that same year I successfully graduated from the Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive High School and I also met the boy that will soon become my future boyfriend. I have to go, by for now.
