This is my fourth year working on this peach farm and my seventh year coming to Canada from Jamaica. I met my husband Dwayne working on here. He’s also a Seasonal Agricultural Worker from Jamaica. Back home, he did a bit of farming and a bit of construction work like plumbing, tiling and carpentry. What attracted me to him? He’s very humble and caring. He’s also a God-fearing man who loves and respects his family. We started dating in July, 2019 and were married on January 4, 2021. It was a beautiful wedding.
I’m originally from St. Mary Parish but now we live in the Portland Parish on the north/east part of the country. It’s nice that we can work on this farm together. For fun, I like to play dominoes or go on picnics to the river.
