I was born in the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, came to Canada in my late teens, later on lived in Barbados for a while.
I will be leaving for Nepal later this month (May) to fulfill my volunteer role as a Research and Analysis Advisor with the Centre for International Studies and Co-operation (CECI). Nepal is very dear to my heart, particularly as there is an eastern connection to my ancestral roots. Elements of the Nepalese culture, cuisine, history, religion and spirituality are embedded in my upbringing and have strongly influenced and shaped my life and beliefs.
More importantly, the University of Guelph (U of G) invests in its staff and students in promoting research, scholarship in teaching and learning, and towards achieving excellence. U of G aims to change lives and improve life, which is reflected in their global initiatives like working with UNITERRA, a program jointly implemented by World University Service of Canada and CECI. I look forward to sharing with the Nepalese people and learning from them while immersing myself in their diverse and vibrant culture.
