She should be an example to young St. Lucians on what is achievable through dedication to work and a commitment to contribute to the empowerment of youth, the elderly and defenseless women in our societies.
Further, she is an example of what is achievable in a local, regional and international arena, regardless of place of birth.
Gros Islet and St. Lucia should be proud of Ms. Duncan for her achievements and leadership roles in the areas related to humanitarian work of the Rita Marley Foundation based in Jamaica.
As a product of Gros Islet primary schools in St Lucia, and the University of the West Indies, and her recognized contribution to humanitarian work regionally and internationally in the advancement of youth, I am pleased to present my book to her entitled “The Triangle of Success: For our Youth. Leaders of Tomorrow”, the substance of which is used in various institutions in Africa and United States together with my power point presentation.
I congratulate The VOICE for your report, for you bring to light a member of our Diaspora who is making a contribution to our world through one of our sister Caribbean countries. I wish her continued success and look forward to her participation in my work in the United States.
