Ambassador to the United States and the OAS, His Excellency Dr. Vince Henderson has called on students to be Ambassadors for Dominica.
“Remind yourself you are on a mission and to be successful on your mission. You first get your mind in the right frame, that you are going out to improve your life and the lives of your family and hopefully you will contribute to Dominica’s development,” Henderson told government-assisted university students for the academic year 2019-2020 recently. He added, “You must tell yourself that you represent Dominica at all times.”
Henderson reminded students that every action that they take such as when they graduate with a perfect score, “you make Dominica proud.”
“But when you go and make trouble in the people school, you find yourself in trouble with the law, you bring shame to the country…,” he stated.
He further advised students to go out there and absorb everything that they can, “anything that is good.”
“So when you come back to Dominica you are on a mission to make a contribution to Dominica’s development,” he advised.
Henderson also encouraged students to look out for each other.
“We need to build support especially those who are going to school and there are a number of Dominicans in those schools,” he indicated. “Please stay together, support one another, encourage one another.”
He added, “When you see people falling look out for them…”
