Julien Believe- The Ambassador Who Believes In Bringing The Caribbean Together
Huffington Post - 4 months
Whenever I get the chance to highlight something or someone from the Caribbean making an impact, I fully embrace the opportunity. Since migrating to North America from the southern Caribbean island of Grenada, I have learned how important it is to help shape the narrative of the Caribbean. As nationals and members of the diaspora, we shouldn't allow the media in larger countries to dictate how our Caribbean Islands are seen.

However, others are also leading the charge to help propel the Caribbean, and one such person is Julien Thompson also known as Julien Believe from the Bahamas. I had a chat with Julien, and after hearing his story, I felt it was my duty to talk about what he is doing to help bring the Caribbean together and shap ...

Day, Johnson hopeful despite another golf Masters miss
Yahoo News - 11 months
World number one Jason Day and two-time major runner-up Dustin Johnson couldn't make their Masters breakthroughs, but both departed Augusta National with confidence their green jacket time will come. The two played alongside each other in the third-to-last pairing during the final round of the 80th Masters on Sunday, but neither was able to mount a serious charge at the title won by England's Danny Willett after defending champion Jordan Spieth's quadruple-bogey nightmare at the par-3 12th. Spieth's disaster left him level second with England's Lee Westwood and meant Australia's Day would keep the top ranking despite sharing 10th on one-over par 289.
