A quote from her book
This is my story of Aruba Village North where I was born and partly raised. During several phases of my life I felt shame and embarrassment about the place where my cradle stood. Even as a young adult I didn’t want to be identified and associated with the village and its impoverished lifestyle. However, as I’ve matured, growing older and wiser both spiritually and mentally, I can now loudly proclaim that I’m not ashamed of the village where I was born! As a matter of fact, I take pride in sharing this part of my past with the world!
