Get your dose of Vitamin M!

Today’s spotlight hails from Kingston, Jamaica! I tease Gabrielle all the time because I seriously don’t know what she can’t do. Read how she’s managed to escape to her creative side while still working in the hardworking medical field.

Growing up, I always wanted to be a Doctor (Obstetrician) and do Art on the side. I eventually realized that even though the income would be great after the initial struggle of paying off a hefty student loan, I would not have the time on my hands that I would desire to be the Free Spirit that I am. I still entered the field of Health Care as a Radiologic Technologist. It’s a skill and I enjoy the field. But it wasn’t enough for me as a young adult who just started working in 2010, that used to be the President of at least 2 service Clubs, while sitting on the committee of others, also engaging in modern dance and other sporting activities. I felt like I also started life 3 years behind my high school peers who did not do a 2nd Degree and who were fortunate enough to have their parents pay their way through tertiary education for them. While I had not one, but two degrees worth of Student Loans.

My walls were empty when I moved out on my own into my apartment and I said, ‘Why buy paintings when I can paint them myself?’. I officially started my company, GW Art with seasonal Collections, that has grown so much since then and still has some way to go.
I started to help a friend train her Boot camp (aerobics) class in 2011 too. She had to leave the country for a year and I did so well administering and training classes that I eventually branched out on my own. I got certified in both Personal Training and Sports Nutrition. After a timid start to do this on my own, I thrived by seeing positive results in my clients and being a part of and changing person’s lives. I am now confident and in demand in the Fitness Industry in Jamaica.

I currently find ways to express my 3 fields along with Hobbies, which include Restaurant Reviews, Sports and more on my Website, http://www.sugalifestyle.com. This continuously inspires me and makes me feel like I can branch out even more! #blackentrepreneurship #blackexcellence
