This opportunity of serving on the board of the USA/Mid-West Region of the Jamaica Diaspora would be privilege and honor. It is the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing welfare of Jamaica and still serve our country from afar. The Diaspora is a large community that as I see it capable of contributing to the welfare of Jamaica, the land of our birth for many of us, and the place that our offspring relates to as theirs. What I notice is that there is a large part of the Jamaican community in the
West/Mid West region that is disconnected from Jamaica and not engaged in the welfare of our small island nation. What I see possible is to create a larger reason, a burning desire for the Diaspora to be involved in the conversations and policy changes in Jamaica.
As a part of this region for many years, I periodically disconnect from the community as it is so wide-spread. We do not live in a “tight community” and the masses in this region do not even know there are organizations such as this dedicated to making a difference within Jamaica. Now is the time to create the need and the visibility of the organization. Now more than ever, Jamaica requires us, as Jamaicans, to be involved to protect the island nation and our natural resources, image and power in the global market. Now is the time to eradicate the negative stereotypes associated with our culture and to demand that our elected officials reduce the elements that are detrimental to our future survival in the global economy. I am clear that what the island needs is to not be an island, but a global leader in other areas, besides tourism, sports and music. There is so much more to Jamaica and the community in the Diaspora has gotten resigned to the impact that can be made from so far away, especially here in this region. By being on the Board, there is a way to influence, learn and disseminate information to the targeted market for the organization, It is about bringing not only awareness, but actions and involvement for the future.
What I ask is, what would it be like if the millions of Jamaicans, or those who tout Jamaican as their heritage, put their skills, knowledge and financial savvy in service of Jamaica? Would we be as dependant on international investments that ultimately do not serve or move our economy forward? Would we be beholden to the IMF? Would our currency be continually devalued? Could we actually encourage business growth? Could the international exporting of our goods and services become a viable way to continue generating legitimate revenue? Compete in the global economy like Taiwan? What difference could the Diaspora make?
These are the questions I have and being on the Board to learn, facilitate and act upon the mission of the organization would become and active opportunity to make a difference.
For these reasons, I would be honored to be considered.
