For more than a decade I was writing my map on a tablet full with fear and anxiety. But I’m running now with my story, I’m making it plain!
The foundation of my life was based on fear and nothing else than fear. With almost no self-esteem. Even now I don’t understand when things are wrong in my community and nobody is saying nothing because of fear. I was the same.
I have a dream that one day I will be a giver of hope only with my genuine smile and without words. That others can read Yes I Can through my Eyes, that’s also my hope. Even when I’m speaking abroad, in Curacao or with our Island visitors that’s is also my dream. Speaking 4 languages like Papiamentu, Dutch, English and Spanish is an edge in getting in touch with various communities.
Because of struggles I’ve been through I’m not involved in groups like I was before. Trust was always an issue. I’m a member of Agents of Light even though right now I’m not active but our goal is to educate our Island people about our culture and history. Being a tourist guide helped me a lot to get out and get in touch with people instead of always being at home in my comfort zone.
I have a dream that one day my people, the people of the Island of Curacao will open up without any fear and speak up. It’s not only my dream but also my prayer.
I hope to be in a position to educate human beings about abuse not only focusing on others who did us wrong but also for our self so we don’t abuse others. Because of that the need to educate myself is great!
As I always was listener and not a talker I want to be able to take care of myself emotionally that I can be ready to give a helping hand where it is accepted!
