“That’s part of beauty. It’s embracing all stages of life.”
In the Caribbean, women and men have a very different view of aging.
Meet Roxanne, our latest woman of the Pro-age Revolution.
Find out how Roxanne’s experiences in the Caribbean shaped her worldview in this video.
In the Caribbean, there is an embracing of getting older. The elders are looked at as people that have knowledge and you party with them.
You know, you go to a party, and there are children, two years old, and there's maybe an elder, a great, we call them aunties, even if they're not your aunt, that is 85.
And they're dancing.
That's a part of beauty. It’s when you embrace all the stages of life. And that's what I want to do. I don't want to be raised here and then lose that part of myself.
