I am so excited about my new book for children, Portia Dreams.
It is the childhood story of Portia Simpson Miller, the first and still to date, the only female Prime Minister of Jamaica.
On March 2006 to September 2007 she was elected Prime Minister and again from 5 January 2012 to 3 March 2016. She was the leader of the People’s National Party from 2005 to 2017 and the Leader of the Opposition twice, from 2007 to 2012 and from 2016 to 2017.
Portia Simpson Miller is from a working-class family in the rural area of St Catherine, but she decided very early that she wanted to contribute to change, and supported by both her mother and father, she became a change-maker.
I invite you to read this book and learn about Portia’s childhood and the dreamer that she was.
My goal is to inspire children, especially those from humble beginnings, so they know that regardless of their circumstances, like Portia, they can dream and aspire and become Prime Minister one day.
