Innovate My World

Our Story

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria hit the northeastern Caribbean Islands. It was one of the worst hurricanes on record for the small island of Dominica. Because giving back would make our summer a lot more fun, we decided to host a camp for children. All expenses were paid so that income would not be prohibitive. The students in the program constructed robots, learned creative and performing arts, attended career workshops, and discussed problems along with creating groups to address solutions. The program was well received and has continued every summer since to extend and include workshops on sustainable agricultural practices.

Grace lives by the belief system that knowledge is power and that the appropriate use of power can initiate a positive trajectory for the world.

She is now a Director of Technology Risk Management where she lives through and sees the “knowledge is power” mantra in action everyday.

Innovate My World is the means to implement that vision.
