Another wonderful weekend. The church I have been attending here in Portmore coordinated a trip to Dunn’s River Falls. All along I had been debating whether or not I wanted to attend, but on Friday night I made the decision I would be ready for 8:30am. When Saturday morning came, […]
I was born in Jamaica and have been residing in Canada for over 20 years. I graduated with Honours Bachelor of Arts degree at University of Toronto, a Graduate Certificate in Public Administration at Seneca College, and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of the West Indies, Mona. I've worked for the former Ministry of Children ad Youth Services (now the Ministry of Children, Community, and Social Services). Now I'm a Court and Client Representative for the Ministry of the Attorney General. In my spare time, I write press releases, blogs, and news articles for different organizations, including my own website. I write about experiences about travelling, social justice issues, relationship and spirituality. Visit me at shaunacassell.ca

I never knew it would feel this fulfilling to volunteer. What brings me this joy is the serving aspect. Serving the homeless is an unbelievable feeling. Last Thursday I had a chance to go to the “soup kitchen” again- they served Rice and Peas with stewed turkey neck plus veggies […]
The moment I have been waiting for arrived this week. I woke up early Monday morning to get ready for my first day volunteering at the YMCA. I was not sure what to expect. Ok I started to feel a little nervous, but remembered that this was volunteer work. I […]
I never thought I would be fascinated about highways, of all things. But even the very highway was an attraction for me. I drove from Runaway Bay (Ocho Rios) through Falmouth, Trelawny; then to Montego, St. James until I arrived at a small town called Anchovy. It’s country, that’s what […]
