On my Jamaican birth certificate, my father's occupation is listed as 'Manufacturer of Wicker,' which is a not-so- fancy name for 'Wicker-man,' and my mom is simply listed as a 'Home-maker.' I grew up watching my father use wild vines to create elaborate furniture for hotel ballrooms and fancy suites we could never afford to sleep in. He made hats, baskets, and decorative items - anything really. And my mom? She could generate a sumptuous, three course meal from $JM 300 that would last for two days. So if there's one thing I learnt from my parents, it was how to 'tun mi han,' and that resourcefulness has always played a tremendous role in my life and personal style.
