Hi, I'm Deneve. Welcome to my Writing Portfolio! Here, you will find pieces of my work over the years. I began writing killer essays in the third form for Literature and Language, However, the talent did not come naturally. Through much practice, I honed the skill and began to enter essay competitions.
I live by the mantra, "Whatever you do, do it well". I also seek to improve on every aspect of both my personal and professional life and thus I am open to constructive criticism.
Apart from writing, my spare time is used to cook, volunteer and sing.

In bringing greetings to the congregation, Dr Lincoln Edwards, President of the Northern Caribbean University, sought to congratulate the JCF for keeping the citizens safe. Similarly, Pastor Nevail Barrett, Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Director of the Central Jamaica Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, reiterated the praise for the officers while emphasising the need for prayer in these perilous times.
Respect: Due regard for feelings, wishes or rights of others. That is how the Oxford Dictionary denotes this exemplary word. I term the word exemplary as a result of this profound meaning and what this word means to me. Growing up, I craved respect from others but hardly received it.
This is not a spectacle to miss. Students are impatient to leave school to watch it on either television or live in the National Stadium. The vuvuzelas are blaring from as early as seven in the morning. It is the Friday of the week of 'Champs' and definitely the Wolmer's Trust High School for Girls are alive and excited.
I rarely see youth participating in voluntary activities. In addition, I hardly see youth who enjoy volunteering. But to my amazement, I saw 2,000 young people in Clarendon on Sunday March 20th, who were excited to contribute to the welfare of the parish. They were privileged to serve.
Jamaica's political sphere has been buzzing with activity for the past few weeks. Political spectators lined the streets at rallies and every politically affiliated event, with the media giving full coverage to the events as they unfolded. Social media has never been more alive.
