Retired Nursing Supervisor is dedicated to following her benevolent heart and giving back to Jamaica and its people. Born in Camaguey, Cuba and daughter to a tobacco and coffee farmer, Alcides Curtis has been a fighter for civil rights. At the age of only 8 years old, Alcides and her family were forced to leave Cuba and relocate to Jamaica escape political persecution.

Her enthusiastic demeanor moves people as she inspires individuals to further themselves and uses her humble past as, the tobacco and coffee farmers daughter, as an inspiration to say that anything possible.
Remembering where she comes from and with love for her people and country, Alcides Curtis has decided to return to Jamaica to inspire people all over again. As a Co-founding Director she intends to help organize the workforce, and administer the services of office.
