Guyanese people are everywhere. Seriously. I live with them (they’re my neighbors above and below me in Brooklyn), I work with them (I’m sure you know Lauren Fox), my friends date them, and in New York alone, they’re a pretty large population.
Through my Guyanese acquaintances, I’ve learned that some very well-known celebrities are also from Guyana, or they were raised by Guyanese parents. Here are nine that surprised me, and just might surprise you (if not, then I’m guessing you’re probably Guyanese too…):
9. Dawnn Lewis
Lewis was born to Guyanese parents, Carl and Joyce Lewis, and she was raised in Brooklyn. She hasn’t spoken much of her culture and upbringing, but clearly her upbringing helped her turn out to be quite a success.
