Bienvenidos a Island Vignettes! Welcome to Island Vignettes! I am a daughter of South American soil with a passion for all things Caribbean. I believe that the Caribbean region is a unique space made up of a vibrant populace, a fascinating history and collectively – a prosperous future.

Through the words on this site, I hope to entertain, inspire or accompany you into meaningful reflection while visiting some relevant Development issues affecting the Caribbean. All from the beautiful isle of Jamaica. Think, laugh, cry or shake a fist with me as we reflect on some of my experiences, right here on ISLAND VIGNETTES – The voice of things Caribbean! Happy reading!
