“By challenging our youth to participate and engage in meaningful, supportive and life-changing activities, we empower them to continue their personal path to become confident, capable, contributing and compassionate members of our community. Raleigh is a globally recognised youth and sustainable development programme and I am delighted to be a part of it.”

    • Mike Hind says:

      “Bringing in foreigners”?

      Not only was she not “brought in”, she’s married to a Bermudian, which means that a Bermudian is helped out by her employment.

      But don’t let facts get in the way of your need to spout outrage…

    • Tina Nash says:

      Just to clarify, I am Bermudian, @abc.

  2. Kim Smith says:

    The list of organisations this lady has worked with are here in Bermuda! ‘They’ haven’t brought anyone in @abc. I wonder if you would prefer to have someone who can really help our LOCAL young people based on their expertise or anyone just because they are Bermudian. Surely your thought processes are broader than that? Maybe not.

  6. Tina Nash says:

    Thanks for the kind words all. Just to clarify, I am Bermudian, @abc.
