    Lightbulb Brain Drain or Brain Waste ?

    Is it Brain Drain or Brain Waste ?

    The grass always seems greener on the other side. Some people meeting hell, give up their good jobs here for greener pastures and shame to come home when it doesn't work out.

    What were your reasons for migrating?

    Is it all you thought it would be, good or bad?

    What changes you wanna see in your country before you return home?

    Do you even want to return to your island of birth?

    i was forced by my parents to move to canada then forced by my dad to move to atlanta, now i choose to stay because of my husband.
    i would go home to live in a heartbeat. all my husband has to do is say the word and we goin! i don't like it here very much, it's too fast and hectic. everything worth having costs a lot of money, and in this country the more money you have the more you get. i was much happier in trini...i'm happy now but it's a better life in trini i fine. i'm tired of runnin down the dollars just to have a decent life.

    Am here because of mommy & daddy. Each time I go back home to visit it gets harder and harder to return to this place. I'm reaching a point where I want to move back home within the next five years or be in a position where I can spend at least 3 to 6 months out of the year there.


    When Dororthy clicked her heels and said THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME, she was talkin ah true talk!
    Our Queen went to sleep, her people left to weep....in song she lives on.



    Long Live the Queen!

    What were your reasons for migrating? WAS A TEEN- NO CHOICE

    Is it all you thought it would be, good or bad? I HAD VISITED MANY TIMES SO NOT AS MUCH OF A SHOCK AS IT COULD HAVE BEEN

    What changes you wanna see in your country before you return home? NO MORE HURRICANES!!! (lol) CRIME, POVERTY, INFRASTRUCTURE....

    Do you even want to return to your island of birth? IN A HEARTBEAT!
