#IslandDiaries: Over the moon when we're under the sea




Hannah and I arranged another swim on Friday, to shake off the stress of the week and to get ready to celebrate the weekend!

#LifeinLeggings | Part 2


Hundreds of men, women and children took to the streets this weekend to rally against gender based violence. The energy was incredible, the mood almost electric. 

We started in Queen's Park and walked through Bridgetown, chanting and singing, encouraging bystanders to join in.

It was the first time I participated in something like this in Barbados, and I couldn't be prouder of the group of people who organised this event, and those who showed up to support the cause. By showed up, I mean showed up, banners, energy and all.

#LifeinLeggings | Part 1



It's shocking and embarrassing to know that in 2017, women and children are still not given the same level of respect and rights as men.
It's also shocking to think that for many of us in the Caribbean, sexual harassment, disrespect because of our gender and the threat of violence is a daily occurrence.
