"I was among the first cohort of full-time dual enrolment students at Bermuda College. I was introduced to the programme in my second year at Berkeley, and started in August 2015 when I was 15 years old. I was a bit hesitant with the academic side of it, but knew it could be handled. Socially, it was challenging. I was one of the youngest students on campus. 

While there were many faculty and staff who assisted me along my Bermuda  College journey, faculty that really stood out to me were Craig Simmons (economics lecturer) and Ann Parsons (accounting lecturer). Necheeka Trott (Dual Enrolment Advisor/ math lecturer), and Thaao Dill (Recruitment Officer) helped the dual enrolment students tremendously with choosing classes and making sure we were well equipped. I was honoured to be one of two student speakers at the College’s 2016 Commencement.

I was able to transfer most of my credits to St. John's University in New York. Bermuda College had provided a good academic foundation. The College was also a huge help with identifying scholarship opportunities, providing references and giving overall sound advice. I graduated from St. John's in 2019 with my Bachelor's degree in Quantitative Risk & Insurance. From there I was accepted into Bayes Business School (formerly cass) in the UK, which is extremely competitive, and enrolled into its Finanace programme. I wanted to be more diversified, and start fresh and at a new level  in a new environment. But the pandemic hit and I returned home just before Bermuda closed its borders. However, I successfully completed my courses and final dissertation online, earning my Masters degree in Corporate Finance. "
