Reflections of a Project Mentor QCSC 2015
...having lectured at UG for nearly 20 years,
I have seen how any student, from any school can rise to the occasion with just the right amount of encouragement, guidance and discipline. …I was given North Georgetown Secondary-there were 3 girls and 2 boys.
[About the Project Competition…] I had [one of the female students] practice her presentation-gave her tips, how to stand, what to emphasize, how to speak and she soaked it all up. If I do say so myself, their presentation was fabulous. They got 2nd place and they themselves couldn’t believe it- they kept asking me “Miss we really got second, are you sure??” They were absolutely thrilled with their prizes of flash drives.
…I reunited with my group a few days ago for lunch and it was fantastic. I learned that Oswald [far left] is at [Guyana Technical Institute ](GTI ) with the intention of applying to do Civil Engineering at UG in 2018, and Tyron – is doing CAPE at Bishops’ and wants to become a lawyer. We ‘gyaffed’ about the QC Conference – and the difference it had made in all of our lives, about politics, Guyana’s future, religion, and relationships-it was a bit surreal to hear an 18 year old male lamenting that he was single because ‘this young generation of girls too speedy”.
