Hi, I’m Leah! I also answer to Bongo. I grew up on the tiny island of St. Kitts and I have two cats… I’ve recently turned 30 and I still have no idea of what I’m doing. Last year I really gave quite an effort into running away from the island, and the business I started nearly 6 years ago, so that I could escape to somewhere else in the big, wide, world. I’m back in St. Kitts, temporarily/indefinitely but I’m still hopeful that I will be able to go elsewhere. To do something else. I’m still not quite sure what yet. I’m hoping I’ll figure it out but trying not to be stressed about it as I know it won’t be an overnight thing.
At the risk of sounding like a complete tool, I guess I’ll discover a bit more about who I am. And who I am becoming. I’m really trying not to be an overly introspective person but apparently I am becoming more and more so. We can’t all be perfect…
As far as the whole “who you be, really”… Since I won’t be in St. Kitts I won’t have to explain, on a daily, that yes, a white white person can be from St. Kitts.
The whole lack of blackness aside… I love rocking out with the volume on full in my pick-up (Jah Guide). You can catch me dancing with absolutely no rhythm (my lack of moves as a West Indian is a crying shame but I make up for it with enthusiasm). I’m big on food but ah cyan tek on de whole “foodie” culture. Main got no time for dat. I guzzle books. And most importantly, I make myself laugh. If there are friends around at the same time then that’s just a bonus.
