Meet 7 Year Old Tariq

by Toni Keesee

This month we feature a young CaymanKind! Tariq is 7 years old and a Year 2 student at Savannah Primary School. He was born in Cayman and is Caymanian on both sides of his family tree – in fact his maternal great-grandfather is National Hero James M. Bodden Sr. (There’s a statue of him in George Town.)

Tariq lives in Lower Valley and has an older brother and a younger sister. Some of his favourite things are super heroes, wrestling, Star Wars movies and sushi. He also loves turtles, and his most requested outing is to the Cayman Turtle Farm. He says he loves living in Cayman because of the sunshine, but wishes we had Disney World here.
