At this conference, she was introduced to the Prime Minister of Barbados, The Right Hon. Mr. Freundel Stuart QC. While she was still in secondary school, this was the beginning of a fruitful and excited relationship with Ms. Francis.


She went on to become the President of the Barbados Youth Development Council (BYDC) for 3 years. During her tenure BYDC held various workshops on topics ranging from sexual and reproductive health; mental health and a panel discussion on marginalised youth including youth living with disabilities, migrant youths, LGBTQI youths and religious youths. With support from Corporate Barbados’ foundations, such as the Sandy Lane Trust, BYDC hosted the inaugural Barbados Youth Awards ceremony, which paid tribute to youths making a difference in Barbadian society and leaving a legacy for others to follow. Most noteworthy, Ms. Francis represented BYDC on the National Youth Policy Implementation Committee, spearheaded by the Ministry of Youth.

Trustee of Vision, Structure and Entrepreneurship

Jenai founded SEED in 2011 and launched Micro Macro in 2012 as the practical component of her research project in the Global Development and Social Justice masters programme at St. John's University in Rome Italy. What was intended to be a one year project had grown so quickly, demonstrated such potential to meet real needs and had to be continued.

Since then, Jenai had served as United Nation Coordination Analyst for Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) from 2012-2015. In the 10 island sub-regional cluster, she assisted the Office of the Resident Coordinator with the implementation of UN Reform by promoting One UN through initiatives such as the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and Eastern Caribbean Donor Partners Group (ECDPG). From 2013-2015 she led the UN Communications Group in the commemoration of UN Day, inviting secondary students to UN House to learn more about the work of the System in the region, and how they could aspire to be a part of that great work. Finally, she worked alongside the National Human Rights Officer to commemorate Human Rights Days in December.

Now as Active Investor in Class Act Conferences, with operations in Barbados, The United States of America and Canada, she continues her work with SEED. With high energy and fervour, she hopes to inspire the youth to find and implement home grown solutions to problems facing them. She hopes that SEED would become an incubation for forward thinkers across the Caribbean Region and throughout the Caribbean Diaspora to #DigDeepAndSowSEED.

Mr. Daquane Nedd

Micro Macro Graduate 2016

Ms. Dina Wilkinson

Dina graduated from the Summer 2012 Micro Macro Internship Programme. She impressed us greatly at that time as a young and energetic individual, willing to go above and beyond consistently. She was a great encouragement to her team and demonstrated a notable level of excellence at a very young age.


Beyond that first impression, Ms. Wilkinson has shown an unparalleled commitment to SEED and the Micro Macro Internship Programme. She has returned as a volunteer in 2013, assisting the organization with its appeal for donations to support families of victims after the Christmas Floods in St. Vincent and neighbouring islands. She supported Micro Macro as both a Team Leader and Training Facilitator in 2016 and 2017. Currently, Dina is one of five (5) SEED Ambassadors, who were hand selected and appointed to represent the organization at social gatherings.


We have had a long and fruitful working relationship with Ms. Wilkinson. The 2017 interns who worked under her to produce the FUNtastic FUNmania 2016 Summer Edition event, remarked that she was very personable and easy to work with, even under pressure. The Fundraising Chairperson was very impressed at how well Dina identified and adapted to challenges by taking initiative to implement solutions.

Samuel has a keen interest in international affairs and the development of the Barbadian Society, and the Caribbean Region. He hopes to one day become a diplomat.
