Jamaican Mommies by Shanoy Coombs: From Jamaica; for the world
I just wanted to share an inspirational Story to make women everywhere know that anything is possible. I will be working with Kim Marie via one of my company’s clients (I work with an Advertising Firm). Currently, much buzz has been around Kim Marie’s participation by virtue of her being the first Jamaican woman to venture to the Antarctic zone for an excursion of this nature. What also makes Kim Marie’s story worth telling is that prior to her selection, she has never skied before and is the only Caribbean person on the excursion. Kim Marie joins persons from Cyprus, Ghana, India, Singapore, Brunei, New Zealand and the UK. Now that’s pretty interesting and takes us back to the days of when Jamaicans competed in the Bobsled race at the Olympics. This just goes to show that with hard work, determination and the tenacity to succeed, there can be no barriers. I mean who would have thunk it? We constantly say Jamaicans don’t like the cold, so it must have taken an explorative soul like Kim Marie to take up this challenge.
