Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 23rd 2014 Contents Some have really excelled to the extent that we have
been able to stay in contact with them and contin-
uously expose them to new educational life experi-
ences. In short, I d like them to know that if you
make time for our youth, they will yield for us the
greatest return. The HUB has seen developments in
participants that go far beyond the technology skills
training and into the realm of personal and professional
development such as enhanced co-operation and
teamwork, increased sense of self-worth, better
familial and community relations as well as much
brighter and clearer career vistas.

avenue out of disenfranchisement, an avenue for
research, skill development, innovation and career
advancement no matter what career you choose. It s
becoming a critical life skill and we don t want pockets
of youth and communities left behind.

who work hard and support their children and families
to excel. Some of the parents of students who have
passed through our programmes are real heroes.
Through whatever hardships and challenges they
faced, they ensured that their children attended every
session. In turn, they are able to celebrate with us
when they see the change in their sons and daughters
and what they are able to accomplish, much beyond
What advice would you give to the country s
youths to create a better society?
At the end of the day, it s up to you. Our future
is in your hands. Live with care and diligence, rather
than be taken by the latest fad.
What was the most difficult decision you ever
had to make?
To leave a steady job which I enjoyed to found the
non-profit organisation and launch out on my own
What daily motto/credo do you live by...your
recipe for success?
Choose life, know your identity and recipe, hmm...
.eat lots of fruits and vegetables (laughs out loud)!

with A, the other with P, the initials of your name.
