What do you love about being involved with Connect?
I believe the core of every society’s success is its ability to marry its public and private sector, driven by the common goals of providing education and opportunity, and enhancing the skill set of those within its community. It is the clear understanding of this goal, the passion for its vision and ultimately the pursuit of action by those involved in Connect by Nova that has inspired me to be a part of this initiative. Connect by Nova remains an outstanding example of ‘putting into action’ the core values that I believe will build a brighter future for those within our Cayman community. Active participation in the creation of a better tomorrow is ultimately what I love about Connect by Nova.
