A descendant of the original inhabitants of this country, Tracy Assing can be considered a “princess” of a proud people, the Caribs.
Originally from Arima, Assing—the great niece of a Carib Queen—has continued to keep traditions and memories of the first people alive.
She’s a complete media practitioner, having worked in print, radio and television. Assing is currently pursuing a degree in Mass Communications, doing film and considers herself primarily a “storyteller.”
Proudly speaking about her roots as a child of the First People, Assing said: “On both my mother’s and father’s sides of the family we have indigenous heritage. My mother’s family are from St Vincent and from Tamana and Arena, and my dad’s from Venezuela and Caura.
