Kadian Asemota: From school drop out to self-published author
Growing up was a struggle for her. Moving from place to place to live. No money for food. Hungry at school. Kadian Palmer-Asemota dropped out of a high school in fourth form, in Clarendon, Jamaica, and went to work as a bartender. However, the struggle continued. At 23, she became a wife and moved to St Elizabeth to live with her husband who later migrated to the United States. She remained in Jamaica. Her husband didn’t have a good time in the US then, at one time he lived on the streets of New York. In fact, when Kadian joined him she went to a house with no furniture, not even a bed. Today, Kadian is a self-published author of a children’s book. Follow her story in this interesting chat with Impacting Jamaica host Danik Frazer.
