Jael Joseph’s passion for media is centered around promoting integration in the Caribbean.
Her Jael Joseph LIVE interview series is designed to unite viewers from the Caribbean and the Caribbean Diaspora, allowing them to connect with guests from different territories in the region.
The aim is to create a shared experience among Caribbean people, according to Joseph. She has already interviewed guests from several Caribbean islands, including her home country of Dominica, as well as St Lucia, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guadeloupe.
Joseph’s ability to bridge cultural gaps and connect with guests comes from her personal experiences as both an islander and a migrant to Canada.
As an immigrant, Joseph has faced the challenges of assimilating into Canadian society while building strong bonds with other Caribbean individuals who share similar experiences.
