Why Pulse of Barbados?
The better question is why not Pulse of Barbados? It was created with our youth, their development, and education in mind.
Pulse of Barbados is an online platform that was created with our Bajan youth in mind. It was founded unofficially over 6 years ago in the form of a blog. The purpose of this digital platform is for us, as a diaspora, to help empower our youth to take control of their futures through leadership, education, actions, and well thought out decisions. Pulse of Barbados was shaped with the intent of creating a safe space for our youth to express themselves, for their voices to be heard, and for them to be celebrated. It is a space where dialogue, innovation, and discussions are encouraged, and where the love for Barbados under-girds all thought pieces.
Ms. Lowe is the Founder of the online, youth-centered platform, Pulse of Barbados (www.pulseofbarbados.com). She has over a decade of combined professional experiences working with children and youth in the education sector via instruction, school leadership, program coordination, management, and administration, and in non-profit management. This is all through the lens of youth development- a theory and practice she is a staunch advocate of, because when established and implemented correctly, it works. A belief in and passion for all things youth and Barbados’ development-related, this platform was created to offer insights, recommendations, stimulate discussion and innovation, and to form partnerships with like-minded, purposeful people and entities that are keen on Barbados’ and our youth’s growth and development.
