Doctor Corinth M Lewis – Belizean Author:
I am who I am, because of the support I got of course from my family, but it’s my journey with you, with my country, and with my people, that has brought me to this place, and I thank you for it. Without you, I wouldn’t be who I am. There’s good. There were times when there was not always good, but it created who I am. I am a product of the challenges that I’ve experienced. And so those challenges, I don’t hold them against people, because I think it had to make me who I am. Without them I’d probably would have been a very different person. And so i say again, thank you to Belize.
Volume One is for all audiences and consists of poems, short stories and a play, while Volume Two is for upper primary and high school students. The books should soon be available at retail outlets The launch was held this morning at the Leo Bradley Library.
