Top CSEC achievers: Stunned by her success
published: Saturday | September 2, 2006

Petrina Francis, Staff Reporter


Jones

Stunned. That was the reaction of 15-year-old Nicolette Jones of Wolmer's Girls' School when she got the news that she earned eight ones in the 2006 Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate examinations.

"I could not move, when I saw the results I began shaking and then I started to scream," Nicolette said.

Really surprised

"I was really surprised because I don't think I did enough (work)," she admitted.

Nicolette said while some of her peers were having sleepless nights, she did not stress herself. "I did one subject at a time and when I was tired, I went to bed," she related.

Nicolette, who will turn 16 in October, attributes her success to her form teacher who she said taught her to fast and pray and her parents Grenville and Patricia Jones who were her source of encouragement.

She was involved in tennis, Spanish, speech and drama and octagon clubs, while at lower school. Nicolette said she loves to read and like most teenagers, she enjoys talking on the phone.

A lawyer in the making, she will be doing Spanish, History and sociology at the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examin-ations level at Wolmer's upper school.

Nicolette is a firm believer that an individual should "live his/her life to the fullest because so many things are happening and you do not know what the other day will bring."
