"You know as little children we all have these glittering dreams and aspirations; but as we grow older and life's reality imposes itself, our dreams become what we then call 'more real', but in reality it becomes smaller. That will not happen to me."
The above words serve as the foundation that motivated Tarick to always live by his personal motto: “Do Not Let the World Dampen Your Dreams!”
Today, Tarick is an MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) trained problem solver, a Georgetown University educated business leader and a globally inspired artist who aspires to inspire, mentor and motivate youths at all stages of the educational spectrum to pursue big dreams in Science and Arts. With humble beginnings growing up in Jamaica coupled with a distinctive educational and career experience at top American institutions and businesses respectively, Tarick aims to be a Global Ambassador and Advocate for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) while making a valuable contribution to his home country - Jamaica.
To achieve this goal, Tarick employs entrepreneurship coupled with the use of music, dynamic public speaking, youth mentorship and the art of storytelling to make a social impact.
