Meaning behind Yuh can tek Di gyal outta Jamaica

Yuh can tek di gyal outta Jamaica is derieved from the popular idiom you can take the person out, but I add a Jamaican flare to it using patios.

This means you can take the girl out of Jamaica , but you can’t take Jamaica out of the girl. This means wherever I go or live I will always have my Jamaican ways and you can’t take the Jamaican out of me. I am of Jamaican maroon heritage through my maternal grandmother. The design is uplifting to be proud of my Jamaican roots.

How I designed Yuh can tek

I designed the image using Adobe Photoshop using various text affects and Artistic filters. Instead of using words I used pictures instead. The island represents Jamaica and the girl represent gyal (girl). The girl flinging her arms is me and is a old picture from June 2017.


I copied the image from the Rude Gyal nuh fear jumper to be used on the tote bag.
