Ava’s early life was spent in poor rural Jamaica. At times she was unable to attend school, because of the need to work for food instead. Her inner strength carried her through adolescence when she experienced incest and sexual abuse. As a young adult, she was held at gunpoint, which led her to escape from Jamaica in order to protect her mental health. Instead of giving up under the harsh and disappointing experiences, she called upon her resilience and love for her native country in order to become a strong and self-reliant woman. She has been a powerful voice in helping others in our society to break the cycle of poverty and its effects.
Ms. Brown has overcome the lack of educational opportunities in her early life. Her first MBA was earned from Newport University California. She earned a second MBA from University of Wales. Ava also has a Bachelor in Business Administration and a Diploma in Secondary Education from the University of the West Indies Mona, Jamaica.
Ms. Brown has several books which she has authored. The autobiography of her early life is entitled “Bamboo & Fern”. She writes for a Caribbean magazine which has exposure in several countries. Her Her column is called Avas Courtyard (http://caribbeannewsservice.com/now/avas-courtyard-would-you-marry-for-love-or-money/ ). She regularly contributes to the education magazine, “Be Magazine” published in West Africa and to “The Children Hope Newspaper” on topics such as“Hope for this Generation“ and “Location and Education” to name a few. Her articles have been featured in “The Financial Times”, “The Guardian”, “The Voice Newspaper” and “The Jamaican Gleaner”.
She is the co-author of “Born For This: The Journey To Success In Life, Love and Business”. The book is a tribute to everyone who has tried and failed, to everyone who took on something new and felt the fear of failure and the exhilaration of success. This book is here to remind us that failure and success are not separate from each other as we have been taught, it is here to highlight the fact that you can’t get to success without experiencing failure. It is natural and normal; we are made to experience life through a series of refining moments, until we reach our desired goals. Failure is just an indicator that we are not there yet.
Her most recent collaboration is with friends. They plan to publish a long-anticipated recipe book which will contain examples of her favourite treats.
Avas newest book is “The Musings & Thoughts of Ava Brown: A Collection of Personal Thoughts and Conversations”. In this book Ava shares her personal space with her readers about various issues.
