Jody-Ann Brown receives the (second) Cricket Hall of Fame’s Scholarship
Ms. Brown is the second cricketer to receive the Cricket Hall of Fame’s Scholarship. Mr. Stephan Pink the first cricketer to receive the Hall of Fame’s Scholarship will graduate from the University of the West Indies in November 2022.
Like Mr. Pink Jody found herself in financial difficulties. She had to drop out of school for a year. The Hall found out about Ms. Brown’s dilemma and is willing to finance her studies.
My name is Jody-Ann Asanya Brown. I am 28 years old and reside in St. Andrew.I am currently a member of the Portland Women’s Cricket team and made my debut as a member of the Jamaica Women’s Senior team in the recently concluded Regional T20 and 50 overs competition.
I first represented Jamaica at the U-23 level in 2005 and went on to represent the country at the U-19 level up until 2009.
I am a left arm spin bowler and a right handed batter.
When I’m not playing cricket I also lend time to my other passions: music and philanthropy. I am the founder of Help Di Yutes Foundation that was started in 2016 and since then we’ve collected and given donations to a total of 11 children’s home.
