I love her unusual name – Winsome – defined as charming, cheerful, causing joy. And she seems to be those things. She’s a woman who is glad to be an American and not ashamed to chant “USA! USA!”, and she’s just the kind of immigrant American we want running for public office in our country.
Winsome was born in Kingston, Jamaica in the 1960’s.
I would love to hear her debate Joy Reid. The cheerful warrior, I’m sure, would crush the racist sourpuss.
According to Wikipedia, Winsome immigrated to the United States at the age of six. Her father arrived with just $1.75 and took any job he could find while also continuing his education. She grew up in The Bronx, New York City, and served as an electrician in the United States Marines.
