From Victim, Police Cadet, and NYPD Officer: The Journey of Raveena Ramotar’s Life and Career

On March 16, 2012, 18-year-old Raveena Ramotar’s life significantly changed when her and her family were victims of a home invasion. As she made her way to the shower, she heard something that didn’t sound quite right. “Call the cops!” a family member screamed as she was about to hop into her bathtub.

Sensing that something was terribly wrong, she quickly rushed into her bathtub and called 911 to inform the police that her family is being held at gunpoint in their living room, as she hid going unnoticed by the perpetrators. Soon after, helicopters, a K9 unit, SWAT team, and about 60 police officers swarmed her house trying to save the lives of everyone inside the Ozone Park home that night. Her heroic actions didn’t go unnoticed. The NYPD was extremely impressed by the way she was able to keep herself cool and collected, while on the phone with the 911 operator, and how brave she was to jump out of her two story bathroom window in order to get out of the house and into the neighbor’s yard in time to notify them what was going on inside. She saved her entire family that night from being massacred in their own home, and it has drastically changed the way Raveena will view her life from here on out. (more…)

Baker by Day, Criminal Justice Student by Night

A local college student from South Richmond Hill, Queens, NY, creates a baking business from her home as a pastime between criminal justice classes at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

 

“My name is Feeona Amerally, and I’m 21 years old. I’m currently finishing my last semester at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I started baking at 16 years old after watching my mom do it all the time.  I only recently started to go public because I am home most of the time. I only go to school two days a week and I decided to start because I’m going to go to law school soon, and I wanted some extra cash. I said to myself why not do something that isn’t hard for me, and my boyfriend actually told me to give it a try. My parents don’t want me to work and go to school, so this was good because I bake on my free time. I also don’t like to be bossed around or told what to do, so this was perfect! I can bake Guyanese style cakes (rum cake) and Guyanese pastries like pineapple tarts and cheese rolls. I specialize in chocolate covered Oreos, strawberries, pretzels and cake pops. Everything always tastes better when it’s dipped in chocolate! I’ve baked for weddings, birthdays and baby showers, and my clients always love my chocolate covered treats. I recently created an Instagram page entitled “sweetsbyfee” in order to get my small baking business the jump start that it needs because I’m looking to build a bigger clientele. I’m just a struggling college student trying to make some extra money by baking my way through the hearts and stomachs of my customers one cupcake at a time!”
