Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : January 5th 2015 Contents what life holds. I ve done a lot of living
for my age; but that s what makes
me special and stronger.
My hero is my same aunt I ran
away from, who is like my
mommy. I admire the class and
calibre of woman she is.
Now that I m out here in the
hard world, I m realising the value
of a dollar. Things were given to me
when I was young. Now, working and
cooking and cleaning and making a life
with my husband, I now seeing what it is
to be an adult with responsibilities.
I have a big heart. Seeing how peo-
ple [are] treated out here, I [want]
to be either a motivational speaker
or even a prime minister. I want
to have a grand impact on the
people I live amongst. A lot of
people have it hard and don t
have anybody. I m one of the
people who might feed a
vagrant when I get pay. Is hurt
my heart. And I say to myself,
"If ever I was in a position to
make that different, I would".
That s why I say I have a big
Some people with money
have hearts. Working in cus-
tomer service in Westmoor-
ings, I ve met a lot of them.
Not all of them snobby in
attitude. Some are really,
really nice people.
I hope one day, if I can t
be a prime minister, to open
a non-profit organisation
geared at helping people that
need help. To become a prime
minister, you have to join a
political party and it s a bit cor-
rupting to have to deal with people
who have already corrupted the sys-
tem. I wanted to make my own path but
everybody telling me it not likely.
A Trini is somebody free-spirited,
hardworking and love to lime.
T&T is my family: full stop.

My name is Adanna Jackson-
Idoko and I am young, ambi-
tious and have a big heart.
I went to live with my father s sister
in Barataria at the age of three, after
my mother passed away. My aunt and
uncle were more financially capable of
giving me a better future. But I live in
San Juan seven years now, with my dad.
I have no memory of my mother; only
a photo. I have six other siblings, three
boys, three girls. I m the last.
I went to Newtown Girls RC and
passed for Tranquility, but transferred
to Bishop Anstey East. I liked school.
Now that I left it.
I regret not being focussed in school:
it prevented me from getting a stable
job with a comfortable salary. I have
plans to go back to school. That s the
only way I could acquire the wealth that
I have intentions of accumulating.
My husband s name is Prince Ene
Idoko. I ve been with him a year now.
He cooks Nigerian food for me, like
ochro soup! With different meats in it,
like in the Nigerian movies. I would love
to go to Nigeria. But it s TT$21,000 for
I would love to have kids. But the
financial situation isn t what it should
It s a hard thing, to make your way
in the world: to acquire a home, a car,
a little job. I watch a lot of motivational
videos on YouTube that helps empower
me to think more positively. It helps
in my everyday situations: instead of
telling myself I can t do something, I
tell myself I can.
I m a firm believer in God and Chris-
tianity is what I follow but I don t like
divisions when it comes to God. And
I admit I m a backslider when it comes
to going to church.
I m not much of a Carnival person.
I was never much of a big limer.
You have to hold on to something.
If is not money, you have to hold on to
I like alternative rock, R&B, a little
bit of soca. And I ve begun to like Niger-
ian music of late.
A lot of people say I speak very
maturely, for my age. Is probably
because of my past. I ve had a lot of job
and personal experiences for age 24.
I grew up very, very sheltered with
my aunt and uncle, very little access
to the social life: no cellphone; had to
dress a certain way; Disney Channel
was my favourite because that was the
only one I was allowed to watch. That
forced me to run away at the age of 16.
