Beach Girl, Interrupted

My name is Abigail De Souza and anxiety and panic attacks made last year the worst year of my life.

I was born in Port of Spain General Hospital and have never lived anywhere else in my life but the Woodbrook/St James area. Girl days were, for me, more like boy days. I was a tomboy. When I got older, I started liking makeup and dressing up and that stuff.

My mom was married before and so it’s, like, six of us children, but I’m not close with my brothers and sisters away. I have a lot of cousins because my parents have a lot of siblings.

I don’t have a family yet but I have a boyfriend, Alejandro Ortero. He has Venezuelan roots but he didn’t arrive recently, he was born here. He’s at UWI. Hopefully we’ll have a family of our own soon. I love kids. I always tell him, “I have baby fever.” But he tells me, “No, you have to wait until we’re married. We don’t have money for that yet.”
