So my parents are originally from a small village in Region 1, Barim-Waini. They left that area shortly before I was born and relocated to a remote village along Linden Soesdyke Highway called Silver Hill.
That’s where greatness was born 😄 and where I spent the bulk of my childhood. We lived in a tiny house surrounded by trees. There was nothing but trees. So when I came to Georgetown for the first time, I was enthralled: so many people, so many buildings, so busy. Or so I thought anyway!
It wasn’t until I traveled outside of Guyana for the first time that I had my mind truly blown. By then, I had seen most of the world’s major cities on TV or the internet. But actually being there felt surreal. I felt awed and dwarfed by the immensity of it all.
Naturally, I eagerly reached for my camera. Below are some of the favourite snaps from my travels.
