Oldest & only boy from a family of 3, got 2 younger sisters. Currently working in a well known hotel in Suriname, started of as a part time waiter and I'm now a banquet captain. 4-5 years ago at the training to become a part time waiter I didn't think the hospitality industry was for me, but I learned from the best, got better and what I later started loving and now I don't even see it as a job anymore, it's a place I can be myself. 2 years ago, a few (all working) friends & I started a club or group that in the beginning was just to organize parties and such, but after 1 year of partying we wanted to give back or help others that weren't fit to work or weren't blessed with almost everything like us, we wanted to be more social. Our first step was bringing food & other stuff to a home for HIV positive kids, we choose this group because they're often forgotten & held back because of their disease, when in truth they're innocent little children. Later that year we organised a car wash to gather money to invite these kids over to celebrate christmas with them. We're still thinking of our next project & hope we can help more people. We're all christians in the group and believe that if you help your friend or someone, you'll be blessed twice. we don't ask nothing of other people but to start giving instead of expecting just like we did. Hope that's enough

My TED story
As I already mentioned, I work in a well known hotel, I have the privilege to cater a group of women once a month at their meeting. At one of their meetings Marian Spier was invited for a presentation, and her presentation was about the launch of TEDx in Suriname, so when I came home, looked it up, and here I am.
