Current Rock of Residence:

New Providence, The Bahamas

Island Girl Since:

Born and Bred

Originally Hails From:

New Providence, The Bahamas

Jasmine was born in New Providence, the capital island of The Bahamas (which comprises 700 islands, rocks, and cays). Until 2016, when she moved to England for graduate studies, she had never left her rock for more than a week. In The Bahamas, they have a phrase, “Born, bred, ga dead, Bahamian;” Jasmine considers herself an island girl through and through. Notwithstanding her newfound love for traveling, her islands and fellow Caribbean people are near and dear to her heart.

Jasmine has returned from her studies in England and is now concerned with development of her country and the Caribbean, in general. Her goal is to visit every Caribbean island within the next five years and commune with her fellow Caribbean people. She wants to start a blog to show the diversities of the islands. Many people are not aware of the many languages, cultural differences, similarities, races, and nationalities that hail from the Caribbean.

Her stories will enlighten you of her experiences and those of her friends as she continues her journey as an island gal (although her home island is perceived as the city-life island of The Bahamas). If you would like to reach out, feel free to email Jasmine .
