​Ankh Is a Way

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Keron Ammon and I wear a Kemetic ankh around my neck.


I’m from Tunapuna, near the Eastern Main Road, more city than country. Last of four children. You could say I was the spoiled child but I had a good, well-balanced upbringing.

The level I reached now, all the experiences that brought me here — they’re priceless. I wouldn’t trade [my life] with anybody.

I went El Dorado Senior Comprehensive when the era of the great Blue Thunder football teams was phasing out. Stern John must be left the year before I came in. In El Do Blue Thunder days, Man Utd was the team. They had a great-great-great squad that included Dwight Yorke. Nowadays I look at the whole organisational structure of a football club. Right now, Inter Milan, the Italian club, recently bought over by Chinese owners, watching their whole structure, they’re [looking good to me]. But, then, I always loved Inter Milan from small. So it might be a case of what BC Pires called my philosophy catching up with my heart.

​Ray of Light & Love

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Angelique Parisot-Potter and I am the daughter of the late wrestler, Ray Apollon.


My dad’s stage name was Ray Apollon but his real name was Cyril Joseph. So I was Angelique Parisot-Joseph before I became Angelique Parisot-Potter.

I think of my dad, if not every day, every other day. And he’s been dead for 20 years! He died in February 1997.

A Man for All Tourist Seasons

My name is Shae Jack and I am a belloy/front desk agent at a luxury Tobago hotel.


I’m from Patience Hill in Tobago. After Signal Hill, is Patience Hill. I’m going to the University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad, doing a BSc in leadership & management, with a minor in tourism.

I went to Goodwood High School and then UWI Open Campus, located in Signal Hill. But not Signal Hill School.

I used to play football for Goodwood High School. I was on the right wing. I scored. I led Goodwood High U-14 to the finals and scored two goals to win against Compre [Signal Hill Comprehensive School].

I used to back Real Madrid but I became a traitor, a Judas, and my best team now is Juventus. Christiano Reynaldo is usually the one I focus on. That also makes me a supporter of Portugal in the World Cup. If BC Pires supports Argentina, we’s not friend!

I would say I come from a small family, based on Tobago average - I only have four siblings, two sisters and two brothers. Small, by Tobago standards. I don’t have any children yet but I really want a family. I am longing for that!

Lazy Corridor People

Picture courtesy Mark LyndersayMy name is Nazim Mohammed and I have learned that people in the South are VASTLY more willing to work than people in the East-West Corridor.

I might get rushed by the whole of the East-West Corridor for saying that. But it’s still true.
I’ve been in business since I’m small. Primary school days, really.
I work seven days a week. I recognise it’s not a good thing but I’m a workaholic. I think it’s just a stage in life. I bury my mind in work. When I’m ready, I know how to get out of it.
