Last Sunday Natasha graduated from the Institute of Law and Academic Studies (ILAS) in Trinidad and Tobago with an LLB (Hons) Law Degree from the University of London, UK.
We are extremely proud of our daughter because in the face of adversity, many challenges, hours of hard work whilst holding down a demanding job with American Airlines, a great deal of angst and times when she said she could never do it, she managed to stay focused and come out at the other end with a qualification that is definitely well deserved.
Yes I may seem to be the doting mother and I make no apology for that. There were times when I thought I was doing the degree with her but I don't regret for one minute, the ups, downs, dramas and the costs incurred.
Yes she still has to gain her Legal Practitioner's Certificate which involves more intense study but I am sure she's on her way.
Congratulations and much love darling girl.
