Kingston, JA

“My city is truly one of the most hospitable places I’ve ever been because we love people in Jamaica even if we don’t love ourselves sometimes. We also have a passion for dancing and a love for music that’s on a much deeper level than a lot of other places where people will like music, songs or a particular artist. However, in Jamaica, music is literally life, so to experience Jamaica is to fall in love with her!” — Jesse Royal

East Japanese
"I love Japanese food because it’s clean and healthy and to the point... It gives you the opportunity to appreciate the individual flavors. My order is a salmon tempura with avocados. It’s not on the menu so they make it specially for me." - Jesse Royal
