Our young professional this week is one who has a character of ambition and believes in standing out in the crowd. Both have assisted in defining his career path.

Javorn M. Fahie, 26, of Johnson’s Ghut, Tortola is currently employed with the Government of the Virgin Islands in the Department of Water and Sewerage as a System Operator.

His responsibilities include managing and maintaining the water system on the main island of Tortola. Javorn is also tasked with reporting and responding to water leaks, low pressure or ‘no water’ complaints from the community.

“I do it to the best of my ability.”

Mr Fahie admitted that he is not exactly where he wants to be as a professional. “At my current job, I would love to become a Field Foreman.”

Education

Javorn M. Fahie is a product of the Virgin Islands educational system. He graduated from the Isabella Morris Primary in 2002 and then BVI High School, now Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS), in 2008.

After high school, Mr Fahie attended the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC), where he studied Automotive Technology and graduated in 2015.

Business ventures

While he is a System Operator from 9:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M., Javorn Fahie is also the proud owner of Levelz 2 Thiz 24/hour Taxi Service and Levelz 2 Thiz Promotions.

According to him, Levelz 2 Thiz 24/hour Taxi Service provides reliable, professional and on time services on the island of Tortola. The taxi service also includes free Wi-Fi for the customers.

“My father inspired me to be a taxi driver. In this profession, I like taking things to a different level, not by just being a regular taxi driver but by providing a 24 hours Taxi Service, especially one that people can depend on. I also enjoy meeting new people from different races and cultures,” explained our young professional.

Mr Javorn M. Fahie disclosed that from time to time he is a host for small club events and a promoter for different businesses.

“I would like to see my business expand by acquiring more transport vehicles and always having them up to date with the latest technology; as I like to stand out from others and be ahead of the game.”

Inspiration/Interest

Javorn shared that his hobbies include travelling, reading, promoting events and socialising with friends.

Mr Fahie emphasised that his daughter helps to keep him focused. He further stated that he tries to be a good father by always being there for his daughter and providing for her as well.

“My inspirations are my parents David and Linnet Fahie, who always encourage and support me in everything I do, even when things never used to seem positive. They would say, ‘what’s going to be for you, will be for you.’ They would always encourage me to stay humble and give things time,” said Mr Fahie.

The late, Barbara Turnbull, former Principal of Elmore Stoutt High School was another major influence in our young professional’s life.

He stated that during his years in high school, specifically 10th Grade, he would often times feel like “giving up and calling it quits” but she would encourage him to keep pushing and stay focused.

“This was not only with completing school, but in life, in becoming a successful person in the community,” Fahie stated.

Advice to people

His advice to young people: “Never give up in life and focus on your goals and if you don’t have any, find some. Also, separate yourselves from negativity and always move forward with a positive mindset. Never watch what others have or what they are doing. Stick to your goals and make your own path to success,” Mr Javorn M. Fahie stated.

    I am so proud of you, Javorn. MY heart is bursting with pride. You have always been focused, and spoke your future into being. One could believe it when you when you say that you are going to do this or that, and it will come to fruition. Stay focused, and may God continue to richly bless.
