Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021

FunTimes Magazine’s online presence has given it the capacity to interact with its audience in numerous ways since it was launched last year at the beginning of the pandemic.  This year, we asked our users and viewers to send us their comments on the year 2020 and what they wish to achieve in 2021. Here are some of their responses:


Lyn-Marie Deane

Native of: Barbados

I am thankful that in a world ravished by the coronavirus, to date my family, friends and country (Barbados) have been spared; and that regardless of the obstacles to doing so,  scientists were able to develop a vaccine in short order.

Aside from seeing the end of the coronavirus saga through the vaccination of people across the world, my wish for 2021 is to transition to a new working environment where people will benefit from the efforts of my labour and I can make a living while making a difference.

Jermaine Peart

Native of: Jamaica

In 2020 I was thankful for the lessons I learned and the strength I gained.

My wish for 2021 is to lead with minimal fear and kick ass.


Rachael Davis

Native of Trinidad & Tobago

In 2020 I’m thankful for my supportive community

In 2021, My wishlist includes buying my very first car!!

Vilene Wray

Native of Guyana

I am grateful for my niece who was born in the height of the pandemic. I am grateful that despite the delays of my wedding celebration, I was still able to get married. I'm grateful for my friends and family who made it out of 2020 in good health and mental stability. 

I hope to gather with my friends and family who I have not been able to see due to COVID-19. I just want to hug and love on people. I also hope that people can recover from the negative impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on them.


Renado Harvey

Native of Jamaica

In 2020 I was thankful for life, good health and family.

And my wishlist for 2021 is good health, good friends and strengthening the family.
