Every time we tell someone that we're from the #Caribbean they ask us why did you come here (referring to America)?
We have the same response every single time! To pursue the "#AmericanDream"! In every Caribbean country on our local tv 📺 stations, the United States 🇺🇸 is sold to us through various commercials portraying it as the land of the free.
The free thinking, free spirited, and the freedom fighters. It's said that in America if you can think it you can achieve it so we #WestIndians gravitate to that idea.
No we didn't come here to live for free, we are some of the hardest working people on the planet. No we didn't come to steal your women because frankly Caribbean women are gods gift to mankind. No we didn't come to steal your jobs because we create industries and we specialize in jobs that most don't want to do.
We came here in search of the American dream... BUT! Every great dream begins with a dreamer so you could call Caribbean folks dreamers. The dream however is not limited to any one group/demographic! Anyone can attain their dreams. Always remember, you whom ever you are have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Think 💭 it, dream it, write it down, work as hard & smart as you can to make your dream a reality.
