Former Press Secretary to the Prime Minister Jadia Jn Pierre-Emmanuel has started a new journey, as she is now enrolled as a student at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Faculty of Law in Trinidad and Tobago.
The announcement was made on the official Facebook page of former Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony. Jadia served as Dr. Anthony’s press secretary from January 2012 to January 2016.
In his post, Dr. Anthony said. “She comes to law with incredible experience. She was in the “engine room” so to put it, of the Labour administration. She was brave, courageous, tenacious, passionate, and loyal to the bone. There are so many adjectives to describe her but these will do for the time being.”
Dr. Anthony, a former UWI law lecturer, said that Jn Pierre-Emmanuel was well prepared to embark on her studies and has unique insights into government and its processes.
“She got to know and understand our Constitution. As I once told her, there are so many more secrets to discover in our Constitution. Armed with law, she will be empowered to discover those many secrets,” he added.
He continues, “I believe Jadia will become a phenomenal lawyer. I wish her the very best and yes, I have great expectations. My only hope is that she retains her gift of laughter, her joy of life and living no matter the occasional tribulation that comes her way.”
Jn Pierre-Emmanuel holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from UWI and is the former youth leader of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party.
