#TurksandCaicos#SabrinaGreen, January 30th, 2024 – ‘Raising Royalty’ is how Turks and Caicos Islander, Sabrina Green describes her journey as a single mother, now with a published memoir of the same name, Green is ready to give back to the community which supported her and her daughter, Cyprianna in a tailor-made event.

 

“We’re gonna have speakers, lots of entertainment, great motivational talks etc,” she told the Magnetic Media about ‘Raising Royalty, The Event’ planned for February 3. 

 

While there will be copies of her book on sale complete with a signing, Green said this was not the focus of the event, instead the focus was on giving back. 

 

The Event will feature giveaways of full and partial scholarships, school fee payments, lunch vouchers, uniforms and textbooks. 

 

“If you read the book you would see that there has been a lot of benevolence extended to myself and my daughter, so we decided maybe we can do some giveaways like what we had received,” she said.

 

“We’re looking to do scholarships for two years, some may be longer or shorter, we’ve already had donors coming forward.”

 

Private primary school scholarships have already been secured and Green said she was now searching for a sponsor for a full-ride high school scholarship. 

 

The author has stressed that all were invited out for a chance at securing one of the thoughtful prizes. Tickets are available at the Pentecost Bookstore and cost $50.

 

Green described Raising Royalty, which was published in 2023, as a labour of love on her part. 

 

“There is a bit of adversity that exists within it, but it is a triumphant story in the end,” she said. 

 

While not claiming to be a parenting expert, Sabrina Green, who has accomplished much professionally as well, explained that the aim of Raising Royalty was about sharing her journey as a mother and tips for other single mothers and fathers or anyone taking on the role of parent.

 

As for the most important piece of parenting advice Ms. Green would share?

 

“My greatest piece of advice to any single mother is that you have to respect your children as human beings and as individuals. What I afforded my daughter was the benefit of being able to communicate her feelings, respectfully.” 

 

In contrast to Green’s upbringing, she said Cyprianna was always allowed to talk about what was bothering her. Her now adult daughter is a source of pride.

 

“She’s done very well for herself and she’s happy and I look at her now and think it’s the result of my hard work and commitment as a mother,” she continued “I made her feel valued seen and heard and I think that’s the greatest bit of respect she could have gotten from me as a mother.”

 

Open communication and mutual respect are the result of that parenting style says Green. Now with her daughter grown-up, here are her plans for the future. 

 

“Going forward it is certainly going to be about service. Project Raising Royalty was born from this so my initiatives will be ongoing as an aid to single-parent families and all families.” 

 

Sabrina Green promised that she would remain active in the space of motherhood, from mentorship to speaking engagements. Raising Royalty, the book has been sold out four times at the Pentecost Bookstore since its publication in 2023 and is available on Amazon. 

 

The Event is set for Brayton Hall on Venetian Road and begins at 7 pm.
