Take a moment and listen to Jestine Philgence.

While society is replete with viral videos for all the wrong reasons - school-fights, abuse of women, mistreatment of those with mental illnesses - this El Dorado West Secondary student took the time to spread some positivity.

The video was uploaded to the Facebook page of Dale The Voice and by midday Thursday it had been shared more than 5,600 times and seen by 145,000.


As a minor, CNC3 received the permission of her mother Jessica Supersad to republish the video.

Jestine speaks out about crime and attacks against women in a free-speech, spoken-word style.

"Please stop," she repeats as she explains that this country was popularly known as a loving place to live.

The hundreds of comments under the Facebook post have been largely congratulatory of the message Jestine shares.

Her mother posted: "Thanks everyone for encouraging my daughter Jestine Philgence.....the senseless killing of our youths especially our young ladies had really affected her & this was her way of voicing her concerns."

Jestine herself have been overwhelmed by the positive response.

She said: "Omg Thank You For Posting My Video ❤️❤️ And Thanks For All The Wonderful Comments!!
