The powerful theme, 'women as agents of change' is amplified when we compare different generations of women. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Norma Braithwaite, a woman of the world and an agent of change. I am truly fortunate to know and maintain a close friendship with this wise woman. Norma has been a part of my life for approximately 20 years, as a nanny, a friend, and an overall woman to admire. She is a single mother, a loving grandmother, and a constant caregiver. When I heard about this competition?s theme, she was the first person that came to my mind. From her humble beginnings, Norma established herself as a hardworking individual. She worked most of her life as a housekeeper at a small hotel and afterwards as a nanny. Through hard work and perseverance, Norma was able to provide for her family, create a loving home and even in her retirement was able to buy the property that her and her daughter?s family call home; a big feat for a woman with few means. Norma is an agent of change because she has not passed on prejudices to her descendants; instead she has instilled strong values and good character to all the different generations of women that surround her. ?She is always encouraging her loved ones to succeed in life and strive to be the best they can be. ? Norma lives with her daughter and two granddaughters in a basic two-bedroom townhouse. One Sunday morning, I was able to visit and photograph the interaction they have with one another. The photograph I have submitted is merely one from many but it portrayed Norma?s strong character and her contentment with life. ? During my visit that Sunday, I noticed Norma was not as comfortable in front of the camera as her granddaughters. Norma was sheepish and avoided eye contact with the lens. Her grand daughters on the other hand were enthusiastically poising and jumping in and out of my frame. This photograph was the winner. The photo is of Norma sitting on her couch in her living room with her youngest granddaughter Kaiya on her lap. Norma after watching the young generation of women having fun with the all the photo taking, was able to relax and nearly forget my camera was present. When all settled Kaiya reached over to give Norma a hug, Norma paused and looked straight through my lens, I clicked and was able to capture this beautiful shot, full of expression. The photograph shows two generations of women, Norma with so much knowledge and Kaiya with so much potential. When I think of change, I think of all the positive values that are passed on from generation to generation and how each generation is encouraged to be their own individual and essentially reach for their own stars. ? Norma was a housekeeper. What will Kaiya be?

Friday night food stalls with dance party just beginning in the background, Oistins' Fish Market. I thought Friday Fish Fry was big in Wisconsin but the Bajans make it a celebration. As the food stalls were closing for the evening, I took this photo of a woman who had obviously put in a long day of work. The party had just begun - a group of more than 50 high school age kids were just arriving as the DJ's had the 2 dance areas rockin'. The crowd was a mix of locals, tourists and nearly every age group was represented. We took the public transportation to the market from our hotel in Christ Church - a small, overcrowded van that was in need of some maintenance. Apparently, tourists are not the typical passengers - you just kind of know when people give you that "What are YOU doing here?" look. Still, it suited us just fine and we enjoyed our meal and everyone was very nice to us.
