Excited, relieved, eager, anxious—those were some of the feelings I experienced when I found out I was selected as an Atlas Corps Fellow to serve at the Council on Foundations.

Embrace the Journey

 

journey called life

On January 15, 2017 I boarded a flight destined for Washington D.C. to begin a new chapter on this journey called life. This chapter titled- My Atlas Corps journey will undoubtedly have its hurdles but most importantly I am excited by the opportunities and inspirations I will have along the way.

As a young girl growing up in Kingston, Jamaica I came to the realization that there is no need to be perfect to inspire other but rather, let people be inspired by how you deal with your imperfections. So, throughout life I have chosen (yes it does take conscious effort) to be inspired by the finer, more organic details in life. Therefore, on this journey I look forward to the moments within the moments that will form lasting imprints and be later recalled as precious memories.
