I am 38, but people never believe me.
Occupation: Event coordinator, environmental sustainability advocate and consultant & founder of Eco Rebel Barbados.
Interests: I love to connect to people. My late grandfather Joe Tudor was a well-known Barbadian comedian, my father was a former minister of Government and businessman, my mother is an animal rights activist and operations manager at the Barbados Council for the disabled, and I believe I inherited this from all of them.
Hobbies: Any activity that has to do with nature or the ocean brings me clarity and peace. I love cooking, but only the things that I like to eat, like roast breadfruit and grilled dolphin.
Goals in life: To always live in the moment; to be a giver and to receive, but with a grateful heart. To know and to love who I am. To always try; to fail forward; to speak my truth always.
What does it mean to you to be a Bajan? One of my favourite Errol Barrow quotes explains this perfectly for me: “We will be friends of all, satellites of none.” We are known for our friendly nature, it is what makes being a Bajan so special. We are also known to be free-thinkers, and this is why many brilliant minds are crafted in Barbados.
What do you love most about Barbados? Our Pride and our Industry. And, of course, our colourful expressions of language.
What do you dislike most about Barbados? The fact that our “Pride and our Industry” has suffered a huge blow as a result of corruption and the lack of accountability. Our forefathers sowed the seed, yet we allowed the barn to be raided. I dislike that we are sometimes too passive when it matters most.
How do you hope to make Barbados better? I want to help to empower my people living here, in whatever way I can. I founded Eco Rebel Barbados to use my influence, natural ability to bring people together and my determination for less talk and more action, to contribute to an environmental movement that has been strong in Barbados, and now becoming more relevant.
