Are you where you’ve always wanted to be?

My goal is to go into business full-time so I can focus all my attention on making Tenaj Designs a household name.

What is your biggest professional challenge?

Time management has always been a challenge. There is never enough time in the day.

What is your biggest life challenge?

The fear of failing. There is always the thought of making the wrong decisions.

When you look to the future what do you see?

I see myself in the future as one of Barbados’ top jewellery designers.

What is your favourite pastime?

Volunteering as a camp counsellor during the summer back in the 90s. I just love working with children.

What is your favourite meal?

There is nothing like a bowl of chicken soup with plenty of dumplings.

On Saturday nights where are you likely to be?

My Saturday nights are spent at home preparing for the following week.

What upsets you the most?

Negative persons are very upsetting. I have learnt that going into business you need positive persons to keep you going.

What is your guiding philosophy?

Let no man’s negative opinion of you become a reality.

If you had the chance to manage Barbados for a day, what would you do?

Wow. Only one day? I would put additional programmes in place to give small businesses a financial boost.
