Schol surprise for Dherisha

While her friends were busily checking their Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) results online yesterday, Dherisha Lashley was at first too afraid to venture near the computer.

But, after summoning the courage to eventually check herself, Dherisha was speechless upon realizing she had been awarded a Barbados Scholarship.

The Queen’s College student just couldn’t believe she had got all Grade 1s in her subjects: biology, chemistry, pure mathematics, Caribbean studies and communication studies.

“I mean, I was expecting to do well, but I was just really surprised. I couldn’t believe it,” the 18-year-old told  Barbados TODAY.

“When all of my friends were checking, I was too scared and nervous. Now I’m super excited!”

The former student of Cuthbert Moore Primary said her mother Donna Howard, father Eric Lashley and twin sister Donnsiha Lashley were all extremely proud of her accomplishment. She said she was now awaiting results from the University of the West Indies’ Mona Campus before deciding on her next move.

However, Dherisha has already been accepted at the University of East Anglia in England. And while she hasn’t quite decided what career she will be pursuing, she insists it will be in the medical field.
