Shocked but excited. This is how Celina Burke, one of this year’s Barbados Scholars, is feeling about being awarded the prestigious title. She said a lot of hard work went into it, and she is glad it paid off.
“I’m very excited because I know Unit 2 was a lot more work than Unit 1,” the former Queen’s College student said.
She plans to remain in Barbados for a year before going off to a British university to pursue law. She said, however, that she had not yet decided what she wanted to become.
She thanked her parents for their support and for always pushing her to do her best.
“My parents are very happy for me, and I’m glad I made them proud,” Celina added.
She studied Spanish, law, biology, Caribbean studies and communication studies.
