The Good, the Bad, the Bold & the Beautiful

My name is Esther Lyons and this year will be 29 years I am working at Argyll Waterfall, Tobago.

I was a tour guide but I’m not anymore, because I damaged my knee. So now I am the cleaner! And I sell memorabilias.

I was born on the boat, the Bird of Paradise, leaving Tobago and going to Trinidad. So I really am a born Trinbagonian, born between the two islands. It was more in the middle [of the voyage] so they couldn’t turn back.I go to school in Trinidad but I always was in Tobago, up and down.

I went to Morvant Market School, they called it locally, Lower Morvant Government School. I liked school but I dropped out before time. I was a dropout. That is something you must regret because, after some time in life, you realise you don’t have papers, you don’t have this subject, don’t have that subject. But that didn’t hold me back.
