The Next Generation Diasporians Speak

We are always a generation away from  losing our legacy.

The story is told about a student struggling at the chalk board under the glare of his teacher.  He finally relented with this statement.

“I’m not an underachiever.; you’re just an overexpecter.”

.

.

We fret and worry about our kids as we shepherd them through the tough terrain of the tumultuous teen years.

.

Will they retain our bedrock values of spiritual convictions, hard work , deferred gratification, and high educational aspirations?

.

We have to compete with  new influences for their allegiances.

Well, I decided to get a personal snapshot of three Jam_Nexers  (next generation Jamaican from the diaspora) who just completed their high school years.

.

It was indeed my privilege to enter into conversation with three outstanding young adults, who was willing to share their experience with those still in high school, and share what made their high school years such a success.

.

Remember, success leaves footprints if we just take the time to listen and observe.
