I have been instrumental in the fight against anti-Black racism within the peel district school board the result of which is being currently implemented in all Ontario schools by way of the ministry’s directives. 2) My role as a student advocate. 3) ResQ Youth International Incorporated as founder.3)

My greatest accomplishment to date is successfully delivering 4 children by Cesarean section, loving, nurturing and guiding them to be the best versions of themselves. Being elected and reelected to the Peel District school board as a trustee representing Brampton in wards 3/4 is my second greatest accomplishment especially because I believe that my advocacy and my perseverance played an important role towards the meaningful dismantling of systemic Anti-Black Racism in education. Surviving the trauma of advocating for the humanity of Black students and demanding that their human rights be recognized as they pursue an education is something that I am proud of especially since the changes are significant, permanent and my future grandchildren may have an education in Ontario free of discrimination, racism and hate. My third greatest accomplishment is making the Jamaican Chess Olympic team.

I have had a long and distinguished career in the field of social work and have been successful not only in my employment-related practice, but also in my dedicated volunteer work in my church and in the community. I am a deeply committed family-oriented person. In addition, I nurture strong extended family relationships and am a community mother to many whom I have mentored over the years. I am highly regarded for addressing racial and cultural diversity in social work education and in the community. As a thoughtful leader, I have generously shared my expertise in family and social development with local, provincial and national organizations, notably as a founding member of the Association of Black Social Workers. I would say that one of my greatest accomplishments is my ability to work with people in a way that motivates and inspires them to join the fight for social justice and social change.
