Students told to look at their mirror image


Share post:

GRADUATING STUDENTS OF Christ Church Foundation School have been told to consider their mirror image.

This advice has come from human resource professional Charmaine Napolean-Ramsay, who was the featured speaker at last Saturday’s graduation ceremony at the school, held under the theme The Journey Never Ends.

Napolean-Ramsay cited the famous “Mirror Image” speech by former Prime Minister Errol Barrow, who challenged Barbadians to define the kind of mirror image they had of themselves.

“He was calling on the audience to see down the road of life, rather than only where they were at that point,” she said. “So my question to youth this evening is the same: what mirror image do you have of yourself?”

She added that when she was younger, her mirror image of herself was lower than what others saw in her.

Napolean-Ramsay explained she was named head girl at Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary School, a prefect at Christ Church Foundation and went on to attain upper second class honours at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill. (AD)
