Q and A with Shivaun from Kingston, Jamaica
“Learn to celebrate the small wins and enjoy the journey to the next goal.”
Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I am passionate about life, helping people, and walking in my God-given purpose. Which is to inspire and motivate others. Whether it is through spoken words, singing, writing songs, or writing a book.
Q: What were your younger years like?
A: My early years were interesting. I am the youngest of six brothers and sisters. People would say I am spoiled. I was not. I was brought up in a Christian home and a home filled with music. From listening to rock steady and reggae music to jazz to Ska to the gospel, and so much more. I also remember that I was always singing whether it was at church, school, or an event. For the most part, I had a close-knit family. Being the last one means I always tried to be assertive as I felt that I was never listened to. In high school and onward, I continued performing and I was the president of the drama club, I.S.C.F. I was also a leader in the student body. I was always a leader, always excited to help, learn new things, and get involved in any way I could. I have too many memorable experiences growing up to mention that have directly and indirectly shaped the woman I am today.
I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I am a proud Caribbean queen and a serial entrepreneur, singer, songwriter, and writer.
Q: What is something valuable you’d like others to know?
A: Something valuable that I hold close to my heart is to walk in your own purpose and focus on your journey because God’s timing for everyone is different. Also, learn to celebrate the small wins and enjoy the journey to the next goal.
Q: What does feminism mean to you?
A: Feminism for me is simply giving recognition that is due to strong and powerful women regardless of where they are from, status, or color. It is not degrading or putting men aside as some may think.
