After recently being pinned an 'I Believe' Ambassador for Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, Basillia Barnaby-Cuff has come a far from being the ambitious five year old desirous of pursuing a career in media.

In fact, the 2012 recipient of the Prime Minister's Youth Award for Excellence in Journalism, has achieved and surpassed that particular dream.

As a child who was heavily involved with the popular 'Small People' Program on LOVE 101 FM, Basillia got acquainted with the media world through daily call-in programmes, where her confidence and public speaking were groomed over the years.
 
With the support of parents Winsome and Basil Barnaby and siblings Brenton and Basil Barnaby Jnr, her accolades go back to being crowned with the highest award of the Small People Program: "Small People Champion (1998-1999).

As part of her prize, she toured the Caribbean and was exposed to different cultures and introduced to dignitaries in the respective countries. 

When Basillia graduated from Glenmuir High school in 2005, it was a no-brainer for her to choose a career.

She went on to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication at the Northern Caribbean University in Mandeville Manchester, where she emphasized in Television Production.

She successfully graduated in 2009. 
 
As fate would have it, Basillia was employed by the company that saw her grow as an individual from year to year, the company that fostered her growth in public speaking and helped to mold her into the God-fearing, respected, caring and loving individual she is - LOVE 101 FM -

To date she has worked as a full time journalist and a freelance Radio Announcer.
 
During the passage of the Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, Basillia experienced what she dubs the HIGHLIGHT of her career so far, when she reported LIVE on BBC WORLD NEWS, representing LOVE 101 FM and Jamaica. She also reported LIVE on CP24 News which is a Canadian News Station.
In terms of being an announcer, her personality On-Air has been transmitted naturally, as this was a capacity she was associated with for most of her life.
 
Basillia currently hosts an engaging, power-packed, energy-filled Youth Segment called "Youth Connection", every Saturday from 3 - 7 pm on LOVE 101 FM, and has been dubbed 'The Beautiful B'.
Through her passion for seeing young people grow and reach higher heights and deeper depths in God, Basillia has sought to positively impact lives and reach souls through her ministry on and off air.

Basillia emcees various national events, concerts, church events and album launches, and is engaged in outreach ministries. She also makes herself available for young people to get advice, guidance or just to talk. 
 
She grew up in the Apostolic faith, and has been saved for the past 15 years. She believes in baptism in Jesus Name and the infilling of the holy ghost.

Basillia strives to get deeper in God every day and seeks to win souls for the Kingdom in every way possible.
 
She lives by the scripture 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me', which has motivated her to take life by the horns as long as her life is ordered by G.P.S.- "God's Perfect Steps". 
'The Beautiful B' also had another crowning moment in 2014, when she cemented her love to her best friend Brian Cuff, by becoming his wife, forming a union they call 'B Squared'.
