Her first work with social impact was when she created the “Honey Bun School Days” campaign, a program which leveraged young talent to empower youth through education.

During her time, the program toured to over 400 schools, reaching over 350,000 students in person. The media arm of the program reached over 700,000 students and became one of the most respected school programs in Jamaica by the Jamaican youth.

Her deepest, deepest hope is to empower as many people as possible, to get past their mental blocks so they can lead the incredible lives they were put on this earth to lead.
But – really – Who the HELL am I?!
Allow me to introduce myself! – (Thanks Jay-Z)
The Real Talk Version:
I’m a Jamasian (Jamaican Asian) who’s also Canadian, Irish, English and Portuguese (and French at heart). So basically – the biggest mutt there ever was!
I’m a reformed depressive and anxious mess, turned life-lover, explorer and purposeful soul!
My journey to finding myself and my purpose in life has led me to find such magic in the world, that it inspires me to nudge others into finding that magic as well!
My biggest passion is learning more and sharing more! So that you can use some of the things I’ve discovered on my own ‘modern-woman-seeking-happiness’ journey, to live life more fully yourself! And so you can experience even more happiness every single day!
I like to feel good! As good as possible! As much as possible! In as many ways as possible!
I’m SO over feeling bad! OVER IT!
You are a powerful and unique human being, destined for such great things. You just have to learn how to use your mind ‘for you’ and not against you!
You know it, in your soul, that you are here for a reason! And that that reason is important! And that it will fill that hole or that longing that you feel inside.
The power is and always has been inside you. I’m just here to share stuff that nudges you into using it!
I believe that my duty in changing the world is to help others heal their minds, having known this struggle intimately myself. Because I think the more people there are with healthy minds, the more people there will be to bring good, instead of pain, into the world.
(Michael Jackson’s ‘Heal the World’ theme song playing here).
Viva la adventurous, magical and awe-inspired life! It is the only way to live!

Words of Love From Ma Mum!
“Life is not like a multiple choice exam my darling. There are no right or wrong answers. It’s more like a painting. You just paint – And some people will appreciate your painting and some people just won’t and never will. And that’s ok. The most important thing is for it to be your authentic painting, which makes it the most powerful painting it could possibly be. And then at the very least, when all is said and done, you would have enjoyed creating it. So paint from the heart my love” – Momma Chong.
