Caribbean Curvy Strong
Our Mission Is To
Caribbean Curvy Strongs mission is to educate, inspire, motivate and empower the lives of individuals of all ages affected by Endometriosis and those individuals that have been victims of Sexual Violence, by focusing on health and wellness issues relating to Endometriosis and Sexual Violence.
Healthy, happy and educated lifestyles!
Educating our Circle on Endometriosis and how you can get through each day, eat, live and thrive despite the debilitating pain is one of our main goals. Endometriosis can affect 1 in 10 individuals and in many cases, they do not know they have it. Endometriosis is Hereditary it can pass from mother to daughter.
We advocate and provide a safe space/circle for those females who have been victims of Sexual Violence. Sexual Violence surrounds us in so many forms and it is time we get out of the mentality of “sweep everything” under the carpet. I want to rip that carpet up and expose everything to the light. I am tired of our girls and women living without a strong voice, we want that voice amplified to the fullest.
I am a first-generation United States born immigrant of Trinidadian parents and family base. My mother migrated to Canada and then the US in the early seventies. I come from a long line of very strong and determined women and men within a large family. “Family” is very important to me both the ones we are born with and the ones we choose. I had a very rough upbringing with one trauma after another, my first being my flight to the United States where I was separated from my older sisters. Several years later I attended the funeral of my mother who was murdered when I turned ten. My culture is a big part of who I am, and it extends to how I interact with others.
