Goodbye 2015; welcome 2016!

What are your plans for the New Year? Are New Year resolutions worth the trouble of creating them?

Here's what a few Dominicans say about the issue:

Albert Gabriel

"Well my New Year resolution I am looking for betterment for those who do construction because we suffered in 2015 and it has been a little bit difficult. I have been doing construction for 27 years and this is the worst I have seen. If you ask any other contractor in Dominica how things was in terms of work and they will tell you it was difficult because the Chinese have come in and take all the projects from us and it has been difficult."

Keanu Winston

"I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions but for 2016 I hope to be content. I want to go through the year with great friends and blessings for myself and my family. Also in 2016 I would like to see an increase in employment for those that will be graduating college soon including myself especially in the fields that we study and not just settling for a job."

Deanella Daley

"All I want from 2016 is more health, strength, peace, prosperity and love not only for myself and family but for Dominica as one big happy country. Too many times we say new year new me and continue the same old routine of living life. In life the only things that can change are weather, time and money, but trying to be a better person, helping those less fortunate that's a change working on in 2016".

Fynne Forde

"I suppose to graduate this year and my plan is to graduate with honours with the hope of getting a job and a scholarship to go further my education; that is my main plan for this year. Also I feel that there is a restriction in the job market for those of us that will be living school most young people flock to Clear Harbour and are left with NEP as their only option."

Nigel Joseph

"For the year 2016 I am looking forward to moving up in my job, being healthy and finding peace with everything and everybody. For this year I am hoping to see major steps in rebuilding Dominica after the passage of Tropical Storm Erika, we still have a lot to do and I honestly feel if both political parties come together much can be done."
