Today we’re talking to best-selling author, motivational speaker Gayneté Jones, a Bermudian who is also charting her own path. This episode is extra special to me because I get to share more stories of another successful Bermudian Woman! It's really amazing to put my country on the map in ways that haven't been done before.
Gayneté started taking part in international experiences when she was in her teens. While living in Venezuela, she was held hostage by police officers, and it was at this point that she realized that nothing is guaranteed.
After moving back to Bermuda, she enrolled in a college program but ended up getting pregnant. Even though she was technically a teen mom at 19, she didn’t let statistics define what she could or couldn’t be. Most people write you off in terms of what you’ll be able to achieve after having a baby so young, but Gayneté wasn’t having that
She eventually found the start of what would be her passion and began writing her first book. Then, tragedy struck.
