‘Blooming where I am planted’
My name is Linisa and I’m a writer, creative and entrepreneur that does way too many things. I love Antigua but I often times find myself feeling claustrophobic living on an island as a creative. As a dreamer and over-achiever, I’m always looking towards the next challenge to cure my boredom.
My website is currently under construction, so I’ve decided to use this new ‘Milkshake App’ to share snippets of my professional life as I continue on my never ending journey to unearth every last potential that sleeps within me.
Thank you for reading!

Entrepreneur | Content Creator Creative Director
I’m a proud island girl. Born in Guyana, my family migrated to Antigua when I was just 4, and I’ve called the land of 365 beaches my home every since. I’m a content creator, curator and communicator, a writer, poet, playwright and entrepreneur. Founder and CEO of BGR Media & Communications Inc, a public relations, media, communication and brand marketing company. I’m also the Creative Director of an events management company and a real estate agent.
I’m a gender rights activist, using my non profit organization The Black Girl In The Ring Foundation to educate and teach girls and youth about positive sexual health and wellness practices. I’m also the Founder of The Black Exhibit - a creative collective, and the Secretary of the Eastern Caribbean Copyright Licensing Association (ECCLA), which is the rights management organisation in the text and image spheres for the OECS sub-region.
To date, my poetry has been published in three anthologies including The World Record alongside Derek Walcott, the late St. Lucian poet and playwright who received the 1992 Nobel Prize in Literature. My work has been featured in regional and international literary and theatre festivals and used at the college and university level to address themes such as black womanhood and colorism. My poetry has been broadcasted on BBC, and I’ve functioned in the roles of feature writer, Sub-editor and Editor on many projects.
