The 2017 Governor-General Achievement Award Recipient for the Diaspora, Tanesha Westcarr says it is vitally important that Jamaicans living in the UK keep  connected to their motherland in the Caribbean.

Born in Jamaica, migrating as an infant to the US before returning to Jamaica for schooling and now studying and working in the UK, she is the epitome of the hard working, committed  Jamaican abroad.

She returned to Jamaica for the Jamaica  55 Diaspora Conference held in the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston and took time to talk with Loop News’ Group Executive Editor Al Edwards  about forming a closer bond with Jamaica , her work and her ambitions.
