OH BOY!: Kamille Bailey
There's no limit to how much work Kamille does in 24 hours. I met Kamille in secondary school when I was 16 years old, and we have been friends since. She has a great sense of humour, and isn't afraid to be goofy, lovingly tease you, or make a good joke. One of the realest people to know; she's not afraid to say what she's thinking (I love that about her), Kamille is a resilient girl we can learn a lot from. She's been operating her make up business KamGlam for 6 months, where she imports high end make up products that you don't find readily available in Barbados. To those of you back at home, give her a follow! (click on the pink highlighted "KamGlam").
TCA:Give a brief description of yourself as a young girl, and the personality traits that you have taken with you up until now. Looking back at the younger you, what is a previous difficult experience that you are proud of the younger you handling well?
When I was younger I was really determined to do well in everything I did. I was obsessed with being the best. I was also really silly. I loved making jokes and having fun, but I was also really sensitive deep down. Now I'm a little more laid back, and I try to compete with myself to be a better person because I know that everyone evolves at their own pace. I'm still pretty sensitive, but I'm proud of how I handled my parent's divorce. It was hard on me but I was still strong for them and understanding even though all I wanted was for them to be together again.
TCA: Do you believe in today’s idea of a “feminist movement” or do you believe in encouraging girls to participate in and achieving anything and everything that they et their hearts on?
I believe that girls should do whatever they want and that equality is very important, because there's no time to let opportunities pass you by just because society makes you feel that as a woman you shouldn't or you can't.
TCA: What are you most proud of achieving "for a girl" that society at that time would not have expected / found acceptable?
I'm proud of opening my business and keeping it open with all the obstacles that came my way and doing everything all on my own.
TCA: If there was anything you could say to your 10 year old self, what would it be?
Don't be afraid to do something just because you think you won't be good at it.
TCA: What do you think the most important lesson that women of today should teach girls; the women of tomorrow?
I think women should teach girls to love themselves unconditionally and that they are important. When you love and value yourself it shows through and makes you a force to be reckoned with.
