So a while ago, I was sitting down wondering what could I possibly talk about on this blog today, and I decided to go through my mental list of things going on.
…it’s a Friday…I’m going out tonight…the Olympics are happening…then it hit me, THE OLYMPICS ARE HAPPENING!
Tonight going out to a party tonight to watch the Olympics. Matter of fact, parties are happening all around the TCI tonight to watch the Olympics!
Now, if your knowledge of the Turks & Caicos is pretty much at a basic level, you’re probably wondering why we’re over here freaking out about the Olympics on this fine Friday night. You might even be thinking about if you even saw a Team TCI walk into the stadium on the night of the opening ceremony. Well, you didn’t.
However, you might have seen someone who has quickly become the most recognisable face when it comes to track & field in the Turks & Caicos. Within the crowd of Olympians representing Great Britain is none other than the TCI’s very first Olympian, Delano Williams.
Yes, it is all cause of this one man that so many islanders are freaking out, but can you blame us? He’s our first Olympian, he’s a door opener & he’s proof that a person from a country that shows up as a dot on most maps can end up on the world stage.
It’s things like this that get me so excited, and so happy to be a millennial of the Turks and Caicos Islands cause the people in the TCI are really doing great things. Take for example, Chrystal “Tess” Charles, one of the best singers and sweetest hearts that I know. Tonight she is performing, which I will be attending as well and she has to be one of the most dedicated people I know because she has honestly put her heart, soul and time into perfecting her craft & sharing her gift with anyone she can.
But Chrystal and Delano are not the only millennials working hard. I could go on and on about the hardworking young people of the Turks and Caicos, but I literally know too many and I’d ramble on forever about them, but hopefully I may even be able to feature a couple of them on this blog, because their talent and dedication is something that should never be overlooked.
Moreover, like I said before, I’m happy, actually, I’m proud to be a millennial of the Turks and Caicos Islands because millennials are out here doing their thing and I’m excited to join in on that.
Well anyway, that’s all for now & just a tidbit, you can watch Delano run tonight in the 4×4 relay heats at 8:21 (UTC-4:00) he will be running in the Great Britain team as their second leg, so look out for him.
Love, peace & edge control (happiness)
