A year after the surgery which took place on February 17, 2006, at the Down State University Hospital in New York, she bears a few scars which she wears proudly like badges of honour.

Olivia, a teacher at St Stephens Nursery School, went to Brooklyn, New York, to study child psychology back in December 1999. She never imagined she would come back to Barbados short of one kidney.
