"I am from Trinidad and Tobago. I grew up in the Caribbean. My mother is from Trinidad and my father is from St Vincent. I am black and a Christian. I was born in Port of Spain, which is a cosmopolitan area. There was a lot of land around where we lived and me and my friends would just play all the time, all day every day!"

About Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island sovereign state that is the southernmost nation in the Caribbean sea. This expanse of water is situated southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America. (It comprises more than 700 islands, islets, reefs and cays.)
The island of Trinidad was a Spanish colony from the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1498 until the island was surrendered to the British in 1797. During the same period, the island of Tobago changed hands among Spanish, British, French, Dutch and Courlander colonizers more times than any other island in the Caribbean. Trinidad and Tobago were ceded to Britain in 1802, unified in 1889, obtained independence in 1962 and became a republic in 1976.
It is the most developed and wealthiest nation in the Caribbean and known for its Carnival celebration and as the birthplace of steelpan drums, the limbo, and music styles such as calypso, soca, parang and chutney.
