The Premier said, “It was a pleasure to have Namrata join me at the Cabinet Office today. I was extremely impressed with her confidence and poise and she was fully engaged in the issues facing the community. All of our Youth Parliamentarians have a wonderful opportunity to learn about our Country, our democratic process and the laws that govern Bermuda.
“The Throne Speech that Namrata delivered was very insightful and thought provoking and I want to commend all our Youth Parliamentarians for their hard work and efforts. Ultimately, I encouraged Namrata to continue to pursue her passion for community advocacy, and someday, I hope to see her involved in public service as I believe she is one of our bright young stars who has much to offer Bermuda in the future.”
