News left debater speechless

Nia Marshall is the latest Queens College’s Beta girl to add her name to history’s pages in academic excellence as a Scholarship Winner.

Just back from debating at the world school debates in Bali, Indonesia, Marshall said she was speechless to hear the good news.

“I was overwhelmed both times, in unit one and unit two I actually cried in front of the computer screen, I knew for a fact that before I entered sixth form that it was extremely difficult to attain grades ones in the subject areas that I perused,” she said.

Marshall studied Economics, Law, Management, Business, Caribbean Studies and Communication Studies.

She gave much credit to her lessons and school teachers.

“We were always given homework and it was extremely intense.”

Marshall said she wants to publicly thank my parents, without whom she would not be here today with the scholarship. “They were there through my trying time,” Marshall explained.

She will be heading to the Newcastle University to persue law.

“I choose that university because I want to do public international law and it’s evident that they have a very strong research programme in those areas, its perfect for me as it pertains to diplomatic relations” Marshall added.

    I don’t know if you realize it, but you haven’t told us what the good new is, even if some of us have a fairly good idea. And if the good news is indeed the Barbados scholarship, isn’t it a bit of a stretch to equate it with creating history, which, afterall, is the occurrence of an unprecedented event of national importance.

    She will live in the hearts of the friends she made, And always be known for the foundation she laid, Because goodness and fairness never die…
    they go shining on like the sun in the sky.
    Just as honour and truth endure forever,
    Death is powerless to destroy or sever….
    So her gallant soul has taken flight into a

    @ Shelly Ross – are you trying to come over as being intelligent?

    Don’t see the relationship between your response and the article or the individual.

    Anyhow, congrats to the young lady and all the best in your future studies.

    You made an excellent decision in choosing Newcastle.

    Taught there for a while.

    Donal trump, are you from a true perpestive of intelligence intelligent your self,-taking into consideration the fact that
    colored people all over the world, have had to sound intelligent,
    look intelligent,& prove to whites that they are not the jack asses
    that whites & blacks with white minds make them out to be, because you taught there makes you intelligent,& the lady unintelligent( we only have black unintelligent & foolish people
    because of psychological & genetic programming by the white slave masters & their children,( black men & women will once again
    shine because the cosmic wheel has turned )& the black man & woman’s time has come .( blacks are Gods who have been programmed to think they are slaves)

    @ Carlisle Norville –

    Am I supposed to deduce anything from your rant above?

    Why are some contributors so unkind and selfish to the young lady who’s doing much more than you at a national effort. Furthermore you are all twice or three times her age. Shame on you and your narrow ways!
