DB: I need to be able to deal with members of the public, to be friendly, helpful and efficient. Being good at maths is helpful with balancing the accounts.

bb: how do you spend your free time?

DB: I enjoy making crafts,walking, nature, and poetry. I have written poetry since I was in school at age 15. I was encouraged by teachers and have written several poems since then. The themes are the paths of life, the mighty hand of God, and my island home ... here is one -

“If one journeys into our woods
and is greeted by the aroma
one thinks the Almighty God has given us a part of Eden.”

bb: That's so lovely! Thank you Dawnamay, we wish you well for the future.

We like this...

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
