Jamaica and it’s flavour of Eloquent Mystique

Landing in Jamaica yet again and not yet 48hrs in I am as excited about learning more about the Land of my birth and the people that I classify as my people. While I have lived in the UK since 1992 and migrated as an adult I still see my homeland as a country still possessing a flavour of eloquent mystique.

No matter the negative elements that recently showcased Jamaica on the international scene, Jamaica is truly a land of beauty and exceptional potential.  With the original aim of this trip to attend the Diaspora Convention which was postponed for various reasons some acceptable and some unacceptable. Nevertheless every disappointment comes with it an appointment but one has got to see the doors or windows of opportunity and walk through it.

Personally, on this trip I want to see the Diaspora lead from the front and not to be followers. For too long many have asked who is this Diaspora without understanding that we are all a part of this Diaspora movement whether directly involved or not. Facilitators for a Better Jamaica ( FFBJ) with the mandate from key sections of the Jamaican UK community will be articulating our views.

Speaking to the students at my former High School, York Castle is what I look forward to most. This morning  I will be doing so,  to see how one can challenge and to inspire a future generation to lead Jamaica forward it is so evident that the nation’s future are in the hands of the younger generation.

    Well Done Sylbourne.

    I value your continous support to Jamaica and the positive views on what we all need to do, constructively.

    Keep up the good work!
