Finding out the good news: positive stories about the Diaspora

In trying to think of ways in which the Diaspora can be drawn back into national development, one idea that struck me was the need to see, hear and read about good things that sons and daughters from the region are doing. So, I was pleased to see in The Jamaica Gleaner today, a story and interview with Muna Heaven, who recently featured on US television in Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice”. flleft_1_po3aqmunaheaveam.jpgYes, she has been fired from the show, but she has made much of Jamaica and its expatriate community proud. Her story is worth reading and let’s urge our media to find and publish more image-building stories like this.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I included it on my own blog.

    I agree that we need more imaging building stories like this. To this end I started my own magazine called the Caribbean Business Digest, but this publication aims to showcase businesses of Caribbean descent in the South Florida area. Respond here if you want learn more.
