Are you a Caricom citizen?

During Carifesta in Suriname, I took the opportunity to ask many of the participants a simple yet deep question – Do you think of yourself as a Caricom citizen, why/why not?

I must change these things

I have spent the past two years of my life studying the closest thing to governmental policies and diplomacy at the University of Guyana, International Relations.

Empowering songs

She has lost the blue hair, for now at least, and has come out with an empowerment anthem that pulled the carpet out from under Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” to take the number one spot.

Wear your literacy cap!

The Princess of theatres

The Princess Hotel and Casino has once again made its name a headliner in Guyana with an international entertainment centre which includes an arcade of hundreds of games, two fully functional theatres and even a 7D Theatre.

The brain drain

Since the 70s, the Brain Drain and its effect on every aspect of society have been injurious to our strength as a nation.

Promoting an artistic society

I had been to numerous drama shows but never a musical in Guyana, until the Georgetown International Academy’s (GIA) production of The Lion King.

The Lion King – A Review

On Tuesday evening, the Georgetown International Academy staged The Lion King – (the musical).

Our national symbols

Still in the spirit of Independence, I continue to ponder how our country is viewed.

Happy? Independence

Walk along Avenue of the Republic in Georgetown and you will come across several bridges, some beautifully designed in wrought iron; some with the British insignia, rusted and broken but still there.

Who will be the next Guyana Star?
