I’ve been coming from Jamaica to work on this peach farm for 21 years. I heard about the program from my MP. I was pleased to be chosen. Not everyone gets selected. It seemed like a good way to help my family. I’ve got four children. Working here helped them go to school. Three of them now live in the USA.
I’m known for my restaurant and my wig collection. I like to cook and back home I have a restaurant called Dimples Restaurant. We serve a lot of things –like pork, rice and peas, steamed fish with crackers and more. I like cooking here too –and sometimes I sell my food to the workers. I also own about 25 wigs. They’re all different colours. I think I bought my first one when I was about 19 to go to a wedding. I buy them at different stores and I love wearing them.
