Patrice Wilson-McHugh still remains the first and only Master of Molecular Mixology in Jamaica.
Wilson-McHugh would like to see Jamaica's economy reflecting positive growth, and a government that is for the people, better control on crime, increased opportunities in education and skills training for more young people.
"The current situation that prevails in Jamaica can be curtailed through entrepreneurship training and business opportunities. Ensuring that all children undergo skills training to widen their opportunities for self-employment or general employment is important, as well as ethics training for all government officials," Wilson-McHugh said.
Civil servants, she asserts, also need to be properly assessed and held accountable to a higher standard of work. She advises young people to survey the economic climate and provide goods and services compatible with the current market environment. She indicated that young entrepreneurs should study the market they wish to enter, and equally access past failures to see where they can improve going forward.
"With food shortage and lack of resources, now may not be a good time to open a restaurant but a great time to go into farming," Wilson-McHugh said.
