On her Instagram, Natalie ‘Natlee’ Harewood seems to truly be committing to the task at hand of canvassing and campaigning to become the next parliamentary representative for The City of Bridgetown.

However, the naysayers seem aplenty on her social media.

Scanning her comments, Harewood posted a video saying:

“It is sad that most of these negative comments are from women. Whether you do good or bad, they will cry you down, they will judge you. But you know what? God has my back, and I have a mission to accomplish and it will be accomplished by the grace of God.”

She took her time to clearly enunciate and communicate her disappointment in the negative commenters.

Many other women told Harewood to keep on keeping on and “don’t mind the haters.”
