Hi, my name is Ngozi Cash (ING-Go-zee),

In my previous missive I wrote a proposal on the internet and multimedia services I could provide Da Pig Beach establishment.

In this presentation I will cover why I am qualified to be Hostess, IT (Internet Technology) Technician and Publicist for Da Pig Beach. The previous letter was a just a proposal. This is a true resume' of my multi-medi technology, promotions and publicity expertise.

My IT and multi-media experience began in 1997 with my first computer, a little 2 GigaByte Windows 95 Packard Bell PC which I enjoyed taking apart and putting back together. After this machine became outdated I asked my father to buy me another, but he told me if I wanted another computer I would have to build one myself and so I did. Since then I have been creating websites, blogs, social networks and eCommerce portals whenever the opportunity arose: TranZ4md.com (Transformation Baptist Church,) BahamasMovieDb.com (Bahamas Movie Data Base) and ShiverBahamas.com (eCommerce portal) are a few sites I created.

In my work for Shiver Bahamas, the proprietress wanted a cashless, eCommerce solution for local vendors to restock their supply of her Bahamian flavoured sorbet which came in five flavours: Mango, Tamarind, Guava, Soursop and Tropical.

In addition to my familiarity with computer hardware I also spent countless hours training to become proficient in the following software programs (the entire Adobe Suite actually) specifically: Adobe Photoshop (digital painting), Adobe Illustrator (vector graphics), Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere (video SFX and editing); Toon Boom Animate Pro (flash based animation) and DAW (digital audio workstation) music production multi-track software: Ableton Live 9 and n-Track Studio; Adobe InDesign, EPubor and Sigil (print and digital e-book publishing software.)

I’m just as familiar in basic administrative software: Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Publisher, Outlook and Access.) I can write budgets and keep track of appointments and deliveries, including data analysis.

My acumen made me invaluable to my late father and in the early noughties (2000’s) I worked as office administrator for his business Bahamas Up Close Productions. We provided production services to motion pictures, music videos and photo shoots visiting these islands.

A few of which are:

“Into the Blue” (Paul Walker, Jessica Alba),

 

James Bond 21, “Casino Royale” (Daniel Craig),

 

Italian hit movie “Matrimonial alle Bahamas;” (Wedding in the Bahamas)

 

 “Endless Love” (Lionel Richie, Shania Twain)

 Bahamar and recently Kalik beer.

 

Our work included production management, sourcing and providing vehicles, casting services, providing assistant directors and PA’s (production assistants.) The bulk of our services involved scouting locations, even brokering the use of the Bacardi tank for under water sequences, processing passports for cast and crew in addition to data cataloging film equipment for customs. All of this was done in co-operation with the Bahamas Film Commission which at the time was headed by Craig Woods.

 

Alas, the Bahamas Film Commission no longer offers incentives for motion pictures and so our company turned towards tourism, providing excursions, school field trips and after school programs for Bahamian children (tennis and soccer.) At the time, physical educators complained that young children lacked hand-eye co-ordination and so in conjunction with Honorable Minister Dr. Daniel Johnson, former Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, we coordinated events (Summer Jubilee) and programs “Culture Club” and “Tennis Clinic” at the Carmichael Community Center and Gerald Cash Primary School respectively. These programs focused on rapping, “spoken word,” drama, dance, music and athletics.

My job was to take the raw video and or audio footage and turn it into a presentation for parents and teachers to see and enjoy. This provided me invaluable experience and showcased young Bahamian talent. During that time we also wrote a full colour children’s novel (Destiny’s Dilly) for the Ministry of Education’s school curriculum.

As a result I have more than 20 years’ experience in office administration, multi-media production (live videos, animation multi-track music,) graphic design (logos/characters), publishing (booklets/novels/ebooks) and IT Services blogs/website/social networks.

After my father’s unexpected passing in May 2020, I had to become the breadwinner in the family. I applied my multi-media know-how to social media networking and promotion. In late 2020 I worked as a publicist booking economists, actors, activists and politicians on New York Radio and Detroit radio (WBAI Radio 99.5 FM “From the Streets with Bob Law.) 

Host Bob Law is a well-established, highly respected professional broadcaster who brings a local as well as national following. He is also the Producer of the documentary film, "Say it Loud," which is a feature length film about the state of Black radio today, its relationship with the recording industry, and the importance of independent voices on the public airwaves for the Black community.

His weekly show is also broadcast on Detroit’s 910 AM Superstation.  

I booked Actor/Activist Tony Goldwyn (from the movie “Ghosts” and wildly popular TV show “Scandal”) who spoke extensively on prison reform; economist Wendi White (noted or her expertise on Black Spending, Smart Dollar) and now serving Philadelphia Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, American activist and politician famous for his fight against voter suppression. This fight has roots in the civil right movement of the 1960’s

While this experience was stimulating it was not lucrative, so I turned my sights towards becoming a Travel Advisor with InteleTravel (IATA/ARC No.:10-548020.) Covid-19 restrictions ruined that and so now my main focus is to support my mother Helen, who despite her being a lovely 74 year old, suffers from a serious heart condition. For all of my technical abilities, I feel I should have been a doctor. For I can build a computer, but I cannot rebuild her heart.

Below are a few samples of my work, web, graphic, video, audio production and publicity services. There is a lot more stored on old drives. But I would need more time to catalogue it all.

In closing I want to remark that my current employment contract with Paradise Keepsakes T/A Da Pig Beach. (Beginning on the 7th of June 2021) stipulates that I work from Da Pig Beach location. Yet in my capacity as a Business Support Officer for Da Pig Beach, I work from a makeshift office right next to a pulsing music speaker. While this is not unenjoyable, it is also not necessarily conducive to a proper working environment. My task is triple: hostess to many a happy tourist, IT technician and social media publicist. Each capacity must be adequately provided for in order for me to fulfil regular duties.

In order to carry out my duties as hostess and abide by the contractual stipulation to be at Da Pig Beach from 8 Am to 4pm I need transportation. Da Pig beach is a distant location and I have yet to obtain reliable transportation that does not cost me $60 one way, per day. I cannot afford this on a salary of $1,600 per month. I would appreciate a stipend for vehicular transportation to and from Da Pig Beach.

For my IT services and social media promotion I need a dedicated internet connection. At the moment I have little to no internet access. If I borrow the tiny Wi-Fi device currently available I deprive the bar of music and when they have this device they deprive me of my necessary dedicated 150MBPS internet service I need.

I appreciate the request to prove my worth to any employer but I must also extend that challenge to that same employer so they can appreciate the need for an adequate office environment and proper equipment necessary for me to effectively do three jobs.

As of this date 11th June 2021 I have yet to carry out rudimentary IT tasks because of lack of reliable internet service. Should I make changes to a webpage and the service drops out unexpectedly those changes are lost and I have to begin again. My qualifications have to be met with necessary infrastructure.

But I am patient and look forward to growing with this company.

Update 15th 2021

Today our department Marketing, Transport ad Operations received a dedicated WiFi box. Internet work is now moving at a pace. We are simply waiting for our logo.
