For 45 years, Jewel Levy a true born Caymanian from the district of Bodden Town has dedicated her working life to the art of photography and newspaper production and journalism from the time she left John Gray High School in 1976. She joined the Caymanian Compass team as a typesetter but after a brief stay moved to the Nor’wester Group of Publications where she was involved in photography. Tired of that and wanting to further her career, she moved back to the Caymanian Compass where she again became involved in photography. In later years she joined the editorial staff as a photo-journalist and has been there ever since.

Today Jewel can be seen at many events taking pictures and writing reports for publication in the Cayman Compass. She is an example for many Caymanians to follow that once you have put your mind to accomplishing a particular career it is quite possible that you will be quite successful if given the opportunity. Jewel is now a valuable contributor to Cayman’s established media the Cayman Compass and other publications.
