"I was born in Georgetown, Guyana. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis since the age of 6 and was diagnosed at age 10. I grew up with a condition but it never has held me back. I like studying and education – I have a degree in psychology, I’m continuing with another degree and I’m working full time in the government [laughing]! I’m pursuing my second degree in sociology and anthropology and I'm really enjoying it. I’m a strong advocate for education. I have never felt held back by my condition and I hope I can be an example for others. Like they say, if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything!
… Make sure you tell them that I’m a very independent person!"
