I am from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I lived there until I was 9 years old. My hometown of Kingston is known for its city like living, reggae music capital of the world, breathtaking beaches, and one of the most visited vacation spots in the world. Jamaica’s stereotypes are that every native has dreadlocks, smokes weed, and has more than three jobs. Growing up in Jamaica has made me very independent because at a young age I had to learn certain things that say a 7 year old American child would have no clue of knowing, like how to take a commuter bus to and from school. I lived in three states here in America, Pennsylvania, New York, and Tennessee. I currently live here in Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
