“A Life in Mas” in Moko: Caribbean Arts and Letters – 2018

Excerpt:

“Back then it was just a feeling that exploded in my body like fireworks. That’s what mas is at its purest, that feeling: pure joy.

I would capture that feeling from the inside for the first time the first time I played mas in 1989.”

“Mirror Mirror” in Essence – February 2016

Excerpt:

“My favorite doll, the one I had the longest, was the duplicate of one my sister had, because we had everything the same back then. She was Black like us, with our thick hair, and thanks to mom stitching dresses for our ‘twins’ from the scraps of our clothes, they could have been our baby sisters. She was a big doll, not Barbie-size. I liked plaiting her hair almost as much as I hated having my own plaited.”
