Paula Robinson is Operations Manager for Caribstore LLC.

An eccentric and funloving individual, she loves nature, listening to music, organic farming, going to the beach, reading and doing research in her spare time.

She seeks to gather and disseminate relevant and appropriate information that can help to uplift, educate, develop or to simply inform individuals of what is taking place around them.

One of her Credo is:

“As we cannot be universal by knowing everything there is to know about everything, we must know a little about everything, because it is much better to know something about everything than everything about something. Such universality is the finest. It would be still better if we could have both together, but, if a choice must be made, this is the one to choose. The world knows this and does so, for the world is often a good judge.”

― Blaise Pascal, Pensées
