I’m Jamaican. “Yardy” (also yardie) is a moniker of sorts, for Jamaicans living in the diaspora.
As it is with many things, the term ‘yardie’ has some negative connotations associated with it, especially in Britain; however, ALL Jamaican expats consider Jamaica to be our yard (yaad) in the sense that Jamaica is our heart home.
I am a ‘Yardy Boy‘ to the core; someone should write a song about it. ٩(^ᴗ^)و
I’ve lived in Jamaica, Florida, New York and Kyushu. I’ve traveled to quite a few cities in the USA and have visited other places such as Toronto, Frankfurt, Beijing, Shanghai and Seoul to name a few.
In addition to traveling and music, I like cooking, writing, football, martial arts and chess. I’m a bit of an introvert but when I’m among family & friends, you wouldn’t know that I’m reserved at all.
I’m a work in progress.
