The blog title is my own play on a Jamaican proverb I grew up hearing.
Learn fi dance a yaad before yuh dance abraad.
TRANSLATION:Learn to dance at home before you dance abroad.
MEANINGS AND EXPLANATIONS: Try perfecting a skill in private before displaying it in public.
Well being my unruly self (like my hair) I had to dance abroad before I danced at home & I have to thank GT Network based in Trinidad & Tobago for that one dance.
I have mentioned in previous blog posts that I have a YouTube channel where I post mostly my various excursions across Jamaica & the Caribbean.
GT Network decided to take a chance on the kid & add my YouTube vlogs to their line up.
GT Network is a station that currently serves as a unifying platform that promotes West Indian culture, music & lifestyle. (GT Network’s IG profile).
Presently, GT Network’s programs are aired on television in Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada, Barbados, Turks & Caicos, St. Vincent & the Grenadines & Curacao.
*TALK ABOUT SURREAL*
Little old me is actually able to share my love for my island & the Caribbean with others. It is a humbling experience & I will be forever grateful to GT Network for the opportunity.
I also currently share air time with some amazing Caribbean Vloggers.

FUN FACT: It is actually through watching Vashell’s vlogs that I discovered GT Network.
