Carmen possesses an innate creativity that manifests through various hobbies, such as writing heartfelt poetry, sketching intricate drawings, chronicling her thoughts in journals, and indulging in the charm of classic films. Like Alfred Hitchcock, to an old classic and her favourite movie lies the delightful gem called “Coming to America,” brimming with witty exchanges, family expectations, and, above all, contagious laughter.
Her culinary adventures are often centred around the delectable flavours of Jamaican, Chinese and Italian cuisine, which she thoroughly enjoys both preparing and savouring. Dancing and singing with her beloved husband is always fun and keeps the marriage joyous and harmonised.
As an up-and-coming author, Carmen has come to realize that her writing delves deep into the complexities of human relationships, particularly the intricate dynamics of siblings and family bonds. Throughout her personal journey, she has encountered rejection, manipulation, and control since the tender age of six, burdening her with a lingering sense of blame and shame that persisted for years.
However, she has since unearthed a profound realization: every experience she endured, no matter how trying, has contributed to the development of her character in ways that would otherwise remain unexplored.
Determined to use the fuel of her past pain to propel herself forward, Carmen stands unwaveringly by her truth, embracing the life she was destined to live. With unwavering faith, she believes that all things will ultimately work together for her good and bring glory to a God.
