    Look at my baby girl…..taught her at St. Stephen’s Primary so many years ago and she promised me from then that she was going achieve greatness. I really thought when she went to study in Malta that she had achieved that, but I guess she has more plans. So proud of you my dear!!!! Continue to aspire and achieve!!!!
