–    “Poetry can be a platform for positive change”By Kiana WilburgOver 30 highly regarded poets across Guyana, who have either heard one of her CDs or witnessed her live performance, stated that she is an excellent poet.With this in mind, come June 4, The Upscale Restaurant and Sports Bar, located at Regent and Hinck Streets, will be featuring American-born Kamadyah Yisrael, who is known to many as the “Lioness of Poetry.”Kamadyah YisraelYisrael came to Guyana when she was just nine years old. She attended Sacred Heart Primary and later progressed to The Bishops’ High School and University of Guyana (UG) where she majored in History. She later moved on to the University of Georgia where she acquired a Masters degree and now lectures at UGThe 27-year-old told this publication during a very candid interview that though she aspired to be a lawyer, that changed when her desire to have a family grew as well.“I may consider practicing in the future but for now my focus is my family, Jerseys NFL China, ” said Yisrael.She said that she found her passion for writing poetry when she was about eleven or twelve years old, but she was never fond of sharing her work. However, it wasn’t until her first performance at church which transformed the shy young lady into a powerful, spoken word poet.Today, with over 100 pieces, Yisrael is seriously considering the prospect of publishing an anthology (a collection of poetry).The ‘Lioness of Poetry’ who has toured the USA performing as a spoken word artist, related that she currently has three recorded CDs and is in process of recording her fourth.Faithful fans of the poet begged this publication to ask Yisrael to start a blog where her work can be followed. The humble poet simply blushed saying that a blog is in the making along with videos that will be available on You Tube.However, to her fans and those who will be attending the Poetry night, Kamadyah will have her CDs on sale.Yisrael related that her most popular topics in poetry are “love, relationships and God, ” all of which are explored thoroughly.When she was asked what influences her work, The University Lecturer laughed heartily and said “My husband, but I’m also inspired by the simplest things around me.”Though the mother of two is working towards becoming a Def Jam Poet, she describes poetry as being very important to her. She explained that poetry is her outlet and she writes for the purpose of inspiring and evoking thoughts in others. “It’s a platform for change if used correctly, ” she said.When this newspaper asked Yisrael to comment on her style of poetry, she said, “I can’t be the soft spoken poet though I appreciate that style a lot.”Nevertheless, through thorough investigations it was noted that Yisrael undoubtedly owns the stage and commands your attention. It is said that “she captivates her audience effortlessly.”Moreover, the poetess shared with me that her favourite local poets are, “Randolph Critchlow, Juanita Critchlow, Rochelle Christie, Jaime “Suru” Mayers, Mark Luke Edwards, Yerrodin Akeel Bowen and Yaphet Jackman… although he hasn’t performed in ages.”As for her favourite International poets, she named “Black Ice, Lauryn Hill, Poetic Prince and Afic.”Yisrael finally stated that, “I never sit down and plan to write, poetry simply happens to me and with each piece I evolve.”

They also called for a collective move to be made to seek out alternative sources of energy.While various matters were tabled and discussed, one of the notable topics presented at the forum was CARIFORUM/EU/EPA Agreements.President Bharrat Jagdeo was accorded praise for his intuitiveness in highlighting the many negative consequences which are likely to arise if this agreement is signed in its present form.A resolution requesting that CARICOM Governments withhold signing the EPA agreement and seek to re-negotiate terms that will be beneficial to the region was unanimously passed.Workers forging ahead towards regional integration, educational opportunities for the male worker in the Caribbean, history of the integration movement in the Caribbean, and labour laws and the benefits to public service employees were also among the topics discussed at the conference.The challenges young workers face in the workplace and strategies to overcome them, role of women in Caribbean integration: past, present and future, regional integration and young people — the voice of young public sector workers, NFL Jerseys Supply, women and migration: a Caribbean public sector worker perspective, Caribbean public sector unions and globalization: the challenges and public sector response also attracted the attention of the delegates.At the conference, the practice of good governance was also a point of pivotal discussion throughout the conference. The delegates felt that governments in the region fell short of this practice.Lengthy discussions followed this topic as it was brought to the table. Guyana was singled out as a country that appears not to be practising good governance.Coming from these discussions, a resolution was unanimously passed calling on the Heads of Government of CARICOM to collectively ensure that, within their member states, all public officers act in accordance, and with due respect to, the rule of law and in strict adherence to the principles of good governance.Reports from the conference said that the delegates were “quite conscious of the economic and political situations existing in the region.”Full access to the University of the West Indies (UWI) was the concern of island nations like St. Vincent and the Grenadines and St. Lucia.The representatives of these nations expressed their concern that they do not benefit from all the programmes offered by the UWI.Following this, a resolution was unanimously passed insisting that the governments of the non-campus countries mandate the UWI to provide all programmes offered at UWI to those non-campus countries.Guyana was represented at the conference by three delegates from the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) and 14 observers.Mortimer Livan, the Economic Research and Development Assistant on the Council of the GPSU, and one of the Guyanese delegates to the conference said that the theme of the conference was ‘Workers Forging Ahead as Catalysts to Regional Integration.’In light of the theme, the delegates were separated into different groups (men, women and youth), and examined related topics discussed by various panellists.Numerous committees were formed at the conference, and the GPSU, through Vera Naughton, its Education Officer, was elected as a member of the Education Committee of the CPSA.The CPSA comprises 17 affiliates from 15 countries in the English-speaking Caribbean. The purpose of the annual meeting is to provide a forum where the business of the CPSA can be discussed and recommendations on the way forward can be made.The CPSA conferences are rotated in alphabetical order around the 15 different countries which comprise the CPSA. The next CPSA conference will be held in Grenada in 2009.
