I’m a Peace Corps volunteer with a bachelors degree from The University of North Carolina. I currently work with students at Belair Government School in Grenada to improve their literacy skills and get them excited about reading. I plan to use that same enthusiasm to instill and encourage a passion for sisterhood and and young women’s potential at camp GLOW this year. I couldn’t be more pumped. Let’s get our girl power on!

Ayisha Josephine Sylvester-John is a native New Yorker who spent her childhood summers in Grenada, climbing trees for fruit and looking under river stones for crayfish with her many cousins, on her grandparents property in St. David’s. After a long hiatus she came back to Grenada on vacation, fell in love with the island all over again and moved here. Ayisha works as a customs clerk for North South Trading in Lance Aux Espine.  Ms. John is a Co-Director of Groundation Grenadaa social action collective which focuses on the use of creative media to assess the needs of our communities, raise consciousness and act to create positive radical growth. She is also a Founding Member and one of the Directors of The Grenada Community Library, a grassroots effort born out of the need for a library and resource center to facilitate the needs of both the children and adults of St. Georges. 
 Ayisha has been with Camp G.L.O.W. since it’s beginning in 2012 and has been a Director/Counselor ever since. She says “This journey/adventure that is Camp GLOW has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my lifetime. I get to interact with today’s youth, empowering them with the skills to make a difference in both their lives and the lives of those around them.”
In her spare time (what spare time?) she enjoys yoga, a good book and the beach.
