Here Are My Answers To Anand’s Questions:

What is your goal in life, if any?

I have so many goals, but the one at the top of my list is to become a published author, I’ve written several short story, have been writing poetry for a few years now, and also writing a book (with flashbacks, and in Bahamian dialect) which I’m still struggling with an ending to. I have several endings, but can’t choose the right one.  Another goal is to become a motivational speaker,  I enjoy interacting with people, hearing their story and sharing my own.

  • What makes you click?

What makes me click…..Let’s see! I’m addicted to knowledge, I love learning new things. Like everyone else, my time here is limited so I want to learn as much as I can.

  • What do you like most about yourself?

My determination!

  • What gives you meaning in your work?

Helping others. It brings me joy to know that  my contribution, whether through words or  a listening ear, made a difference in someone else’s life.

  • What personality trait has been the most enduring and representative of you?

This is a tough one! I’d say though, my empathy….

  • What genre of movie do you like best, and how has it evolved over your adult life?

I like horror movies, not the slasher Friday the 13 or Nightmare on Elm Street.  I mean the classics with  Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee. But around 15/16 I fell in love with Tolkien and Roddenberry, so now I’m a huge fan of Fantasy and Sci-Fi.

  • Who is your hero?

My mother.

  • Where do you feel most at peace?

Alone in any open space, the beach, the forest. I love being in nature, smelling the earth, the rain and hearing the birds, crickets, frogs sing.

  • What song makes you sing along out loud, and/or break into dance?

Proud Mary….Tina Turner!

  • What do you want people to remember most about you after meeting you for the first time?

My attentiveness….

  • What is the role of gratitude in your life?

Gratitude means everything. I keep a journal and try to write in it each day, or sometimes I just sit in silence and make a mental note of everything that I’m grateful for.
