(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – After winning the 2017 competition hosted by the Canadian High Commission, two young people were given the opportunity to experience a day in the life of the High Commissioner.
Nineteen-year-old Antiguan, Rose-Marie Reynolds, and 16-year-old Christopher Brathwaite from Barbados, placed first and second respectively, which led them to hold the posts of High Commissioner and Deputy High Commissioner. The competition, which was held to raise awareness of women’s issues, was such a success last year; the High Commission of Canada has decided to run it again!
