I was raised in Jamaica and food has always been a big part of my life. Mrs Muamba’s marries those two loves but it has also given me the opportunity to raise awareness of causes close to me and my family. You may know that we currently work with Arrhythmia Alliance (AA) to raise awareness of the importance of defibrillators and how making them more readily available in public places can make a serious difference for people affected by sudden cardiac arrest.
Both Fabrice and I feel blessed for the love and help shown to us over the last few years and we are grateful every day to be able to live our life together. Beyond our links with AA I have been exploring other ways I can use my business to help others. Jamaica may be far away from my home in England but it is always in my heart.
I truly love Jamaica, the people, the cuisine and the life. I was brought up there and left at 18 to come to study in the UK. I attended Clarendon College and I have recently been lucky enough to set up the Mrs Muamba’s Scholarship Fund there.
The inaugural event saw nine students benefit from bursaries to assist them with purchasing materials for study in a range of subjects they have excelled in. All of the students received an award and were kind enough to send thank you letters. I hope that as Mrs Muamba’s grows so to will the Fund and the number of children who are able to benefit.
The motto of my old school is ‘persevere and excel’ and it remains part of my mantra today on my journey with Mrs Muamba’s.
