Hello out there!!
My name is Fabian Davis. I am 23 years old and I was born and raised in Jamaica. My family and I left the island in 1999, when I was fourteen years old. We moved to Denmark where my big sister had been living for some time. Yeah!!
At first Denmark was really cold and I have to admit I still fight my battle with the cold winters.
I miss Jamaican seafood and jerk chicken so badly... and don't even start me talking about how much I miss my friends and relatives back home.
But apart from the cold, I love it here in Denmark. Living in Denmark is a totally different experience compared to living in the Caribbean.
In Denmark, almost everything you eat you have to get at the supermarket. It was so weird for me to buy apples and bananas in a Danish store. In Jamaica I would just go into my backyard and grab one or two straight from a tree.
One of the best things about Denmark was school, believe it or not. I know, that sounds crazy!
But get this:
In Danish schools I could wear anything I wanted and a school bus would actually come and pick me up from home! In Jamaica, I had to walk miles to get to school!
But apart from walking miles to school I am still the luckiest man in the world. You want to know why?
I AM MARRIED!!
I was recently married to a beautiful woman. Her name is Alexia. We have a wonderful daughter and our second child is on the way!!
It's such a big blessing for me to have them in my life. We are living in a small town, which is called Nykobing.
Alexia and I are both studying at the moment. She is studying to become a midwife and I am studying to become a nurse. When we graduate we would love to travel to third world countries and try to make a difference in someone's life.
Our plan is to work for non-profit organizations and build shelters for homeless kids in Jamaica, Brazil or maybe even some other place in the world. We want to help provide access to good healthcare and teach these kids how to take care of themselves.
We realized that reaching these goals would require us to save up a good bit of money. But how will we ever do that?
Lucky for us while trying to find ways to manage our money, we ran into the FoolProof program and got to know the guys behind FoolProof. They really liked our idea of traveling and helping people at the same time. They asked us to help them develop their program and if they could feature our plans in FoolProof.
Of course I said "yes!"
That's when I became a FoolProof spokesperson.
I'll be sure to keep you guysposted about my study progress and later along the way about our non-profit work in third world countries!
One love, Fabian
