Home Base

I was born in Georgetown, Guyana and migrated to Canada at the age of nine. I lived in Hamilton for 21 years, moved to Mississauga for 12 years and have been living in Oakville for the past two years.


I am in the bachelor of biblical and theological studies program, and would like to major in business as well.

Stimulating Subject Matter

The most interesting thing that I have learned at Redeemer so far is that taking the test is better than getting a zero.

Unique You

One thing that makes me unique is my ability to forgive those who have done me wrong.

Faith Moment

I went through a period of depression and my faith became very meaningful to me. During the initial stages of my depression, I started to write on my wall. My writings consisted of Bible verses, song lyrics, affirmations and messages to God. There was a point when getting out of bed was challenging and my weight gain was a constant reminder of where I was at. It became very dark, really quickly. I believed that God knew where to find me. I communicated with him the best way I could. I was able to get up out of bed and started making small steps towards my recovery. I am still on my journey, but I am not alone.

In Conversation with Christ

When I see Jesus face to face one question I would like to ask him would be, “What makes me unique from everyone else?”

Redeemer Love

My favourite thing about Redeemer is sitting in the dining hall doing schoolwork, and occasionally looking out the window at the landscape. There is peace here.
