This website is dedicated to Hemayel Michael Anthony Martina. Hemayel will be mostly remembered for his positive attitude towards life and devotion to his family and loved ones. His determination to shed light on the path paved by his ancestors and constant drive to realize his dream of ensuring a bright future of his native country, Curaçao, have inspired thousands of people. Hemayel understood early on that he could not realize this dream alone.
With the support of family and friends he embarked on a journey to realize his dream and he modestly indicated:
It's about us... It's not about me, in fact I think the people around me are of great importance because they shaped parts of me... I had great people around me
Hemayel will live on through his poetry, his views on life and all of the people that he touched and inspired during his relatively short physical presence on this planet.
