As a young girl growing up in the Caribbean, Golda Lee Bruce believed that her place was small because of the size of her island. As a child she questioned why no one on Sesame Street looked like her or sounded like her. It was the first sign that her life was different from what she saw in mainstream media. Born on an Island is a series of stories that highlight the richness and uniqueness of the Caribbean while following the journey of a young girl to find her faith and her place in the world.
