My name is Wendi Wright. I was born & raised in Jamaica. And yes, I have that indelible Jamaican pride! I say that because from humble beginnings, I was raised on hard work & manners is due to every man, woman and child. To do my picture justice, I tick all the main ethnic boxes. I grew up on the teachings of Marcus Garvey; the music of Bob Marley, Beanie man & Bounti Killer and many more; an English educational system & spelling; Indian food,seasonings & spices; Chinese culture & food; all while in America's backyard of political influence & their cable TV! For the past 9 years, I have been living amongst the diverse cultures & palm trees in Miami, Florida.
I won’t bore you with the degrees or letters behind my name. My 3 degrees come from Universities in Caribbean, UK & USA. The stories behind achieving each would have to be 3 long chapters in my lifetime biography. I have spent much of my career in the Telecommunications industry in the Caribbean. My present role is representing the Caribbean in the Diaspora market and managing marketing & product operations across multiple Caribbean markets. My education, work & current life have afforded me the opportunity to live & meet people from across every corner of the world.
All the good stuff aside, I know what it feels like to physically lose everything I own at the hands of a hurricane. That would be 2 pivotal chapters of my lifetime biography! I have also taken 2 major leaps of faith moving to different countries to pursue education & work. My mother would say because I was born premature, fighting for my life was ingrained into my core from day 0. I haven’t yet ticked all the boxes society says I should. But hey, that’s society’s problem! I know that I am right where I am supposed to be according to God’s plan as a part of his infinite universe. My hobbies are yoga & photography. You can find me on Linkedin or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Issa wrap! Nuff Blessings!
