Join us for a new installment of Elevate Entrepreneurs Radio Show on Monday August 31 at 8:00PM with special guest Tanisha Blanche, 8:15pm, Est.
Most of her friends compare her voice to the phenomenal Leontyne Price. A voice so big and powerful, one would never know she’s actually very timid on the inside.
Born and raised for the earlier part of her life in Barbados, Tanisha Blanche always dreamt of a life of no struggle. As a toddler, she won the first ever Nation News paper Cute Kid contest. It was from this moment that she was meant for greatness. During her early childhood, she attended Grazettes Primary School in the bustling parish of St. Michael. Her memories of her mother are very faint, because she moved to New York in hopes of making life easier for the two of them. Upon Tanisha’s move to New York, she settled in the little suburban area of Westchester County where she was enrolled at the local elementary school. With the rigorous academic levels in the Caribbean, it was easy to see why she was so advanced in all her subjects. Never bringing home anything less than straight A’s, that dream this little girl from Barbados once envisioned is somewhere in the horizon. >>> read more
Join us for a new installment of Elevate Entrepreneurs Radio show wih Host Aubry Padmore and Danielle Norris aka "Danie the Intern" with special guest William Elcock - Bajan Marketplace on Monday August 31, 2015 at 8:45pm, EST
William graduated from the University of The West Indies with a Bachelor of Science in Physics with a minor in Mathematics in 2013.
He has been fascinated with figuring out how things work and technology since childhood. In January 2013, William was one of the many disappointed former users of Facebook’s Oodle Marketplace which was abruptly discontinued in countries outside of the United States.
This marketplace was an integral part of many persons’ daily lives as it was constantly scoured for deals. Consequently on Friday January 4 th , 2013 at 4:52pm, he took matters into his own hands and created Marketplace Barbados, beginning with the group on Facebook known as Bajan Marketplace: “De Original Marketplace For Bajans Across De Island!”. His sole goal in doing this was to provide a viable forum where great deals could be found and posted as well as to fill the void left by the exit of Oodle.

I was born on April 18, 1990 in a small country of Bangladesh, and came to America when I was very young. I was around 2 and half. At the time, my father had passed away, and I was very ill as well. With everything that was going on, according to my mother, her uncle had convinced her to try and play the Visa lottery. The lottery winner had a chance at opportunity to start a new life in the United States, and by some outrageous lucky turn of events, my mother had won the lottery, and that is how she and I ended up in New York City.
Of course, that was only the beginning, as my health was getting worse. Just because we made it out of a third world country does not mean that life is all of a sudden better. With no money and no place to stay we had a whole new set of problems.
For the first couple of days, we stayed at my mom’s uncle’s house in the Bronx. He was able to find a place to live very quickly, as he had friends who also won the lottery in the past. While there, my mother was able to utilize her experience as a seamstress to find work in the Garment District of Manhattan, and soon we found a place to live with another family that was in the similar situation. We used the time to save up some money, get me treated for my sickness, and after about two years my mom and I found ourselves in our very own apartment.
From the Bronx we moved around quite a bit. We lived in Brooklyn for a year, then Queens, and even in Manhattan at the peak of my mother’s career. That meant that I was moving from school to school as well. That took an impact on my education. I was not able to pick up English as a second language, and my grades took a turn for the worse because of that. Math and Science was the only thing that was keeping me afloat. Around the time that I was in 8th grade was when we finally settled down in Astoria, Queens, because my mother got married to my step-father, and we moved in with him, and because of the fact that I finally was able to settle into school and quickly made up for all the lost time. We did still move three more times after we got Astoria, but we moved locally, so I was able to stay in the same school. We made one last big move in 2001 to a small town in Elmwood Park, NJ to our very own house, and from there life started moving a lot faster. High School came and went, and I always knew I wanted to join the military, so when I turned 18 I joined the United States Marine Corps. The same year I got married to my wife who I had met during my freshmen year of high school, and in August 28, 2008 my son Ashraf was born. >>> read more
