Where I’m from

I was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas. My country is a well known vacation destination and as a result I grew up around tourists. I was conditioned from a young age to treat tourist well due to the fact that the number one industry in my country is and likely always will be Tourism.

The communities in my country are small but they a great because there are still kids outside, we know our neighbours well because most of us grew up together, playing outside, having grill outs and community parties. 11986155_10153060100570671_801103878_o However with the 3 major industries being tourism, Banking and agriculture I found that there just isn’t a place for me there. I have no desire to be constrained to these options. I simply wanted more for myself.11760597_10153060100520671_1706639201_oStill despite the fact that I left I love my country, I have just as much Bahamian pride and any other person from the country. It was a hard choice to make when I left but I don’t regret it.1800319_10202042365033102_1270648729_n(Photos taken in the Bahamas by D’angelo Reid)
