I collect Barbies, world currencies, key chains, funky t-shirts, funky bracelets, 4 leaf clovers, royalty memorabilia, etc.
I have a natural piercing in my upper left ear, which in my country means that I'm stubborn. I'm right handed and can barely hold a tune. I can't text to save my life and I think tumblr is the dumbest shit ever.
I have a scar on my left leg from falling on a wire fence when I was 9.
Born and raised in the island of Jamaica. As normal in my country, I started high school at aged 10, completed it at aged 15. When I came to this country they tried to put me in an English as a second language class, since I guess they didn't hear us when we said that as a Jamaican, English was our first language. My aunt fought that edict and won. They also placed me back one grade, because I was too young to send to the high school, unfortunately we lost that battle and I was sent to 9th grade(in the Junior Building instead of 10th grade in the HS building).
I love listening to music, so at any given point all of these genres & singers will be on heavy rotation:
Reggae, Latin, Old Skool R&B, Pop, Rock.
