Aspiring Communications Leader

Toni-Ann McGivan

Being determined will help me to keep my drive when the road is rocky.

Toni-Ann's story:

From Hope to Dreams Coming Through

Many days we went without food or electricity. My father, who passed in 2020, and my mother have ensured with the little they have to assist me.”

Toni-Ann McGivan, a 19-year-old Jamaican woman from the rural communities of Seaforth and Curtis Bottom, dreams of making a global impact. Art, music, and graphic design are her passions, and she uses her talents to not only express herself but also earn an income.

Toni-Ann’s life has been shaped by resilience. Raised in various family structures, she faced challenges like her mother’s illness and lack of financial stability. Despite these obstacles, she persevered, maintaining an honor roll average for most of her schooling.

Toni-Ann has a big heart and a desire to help others. She envisions creating a haven for young people in her community, offering guidance, career support, and more. 

With your support, Toni-Ann can pursue her dream of studying Animal Biology at the University of the West Indies Mona Campus. She aspires to become a veterinarian and make a positive impact on the world around her.

“Everything that you need to succeed in this life, Toni, you already have it,” her grandfather once told her. Now, it’s your turn to help Toni-Ann unlock her full potential.
