About the event
Born in London, England in the 60's, to a family of five. My parents came to England from the Caribbean islandof Grenada to seek a better life and opportunity here. I also have an older sister and younger brother. Our home was a three bedroom house in London where my dad worked nights and my mother had two part time jobs during the day. Looking back, things seem simpler then. I was the quiet one. I very rarely spoke as my sister loved to talk so everyone rememberedher and my brother, the boutrous one always wanting to fight and play football. but me, I was happy either helping my dad tear down wallpaper to add a new wallpaper or doing any painting and decorating inthe house. And also, helping mum with the cooking and cleaning.
Since I was young, I have always loved to dance to music, sing songs, laugh at comedy shows and decorate cakes. I always enjoyed being creative.
Whether by doing some form of artwork (drawing and painting) or writing poetry this was my outlet. Although I never thought that I would become a writer, from the time I was in my early teens, I wanted to design and build homes for homeless children not knowing that I would become homeless at nineteen
