Destiny is calling says TCI Chevening Scholar

Grand Turk, November 16, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – TCI’s 2018/2019 Chevening Scholar, Ms. Chandra Craigg has returned to the Turks & Caicos after completing a successful year of study in the UK, where she studied a Master’s Degree in MSc in Marketing and Digital strategy at Leeds Beckett University.

The Chevening Programme is a highly regarded globally, and Chandra joins one of the prestigious global education and professional networks by becoming a Chevening Alum. In recognition of her successful completion of her Chevening year, His Excellency the Governor, Nigel Dakin, recently presented Chandra her Chevening completion certificate.

Speaking after meeting with Chandra, Governor Dakin said: “It was a pleasure to meet Chandra and congratulate her on her successful completion of her studies. Our intention with these scholarships is to help build Turks & Caicos future through the development of its most talented people. As Governor, I encourage persons to apply for these prestigious and valuable scholarships”.

Chandra commented: “I’m looking forward to using what I’ve learned in my digital marketing course in my business, Outside the Box Advertising, and starting new ventures. I know that there are some amazing things I can bring to business in the TCI. To persons who are on the fence about Chevening and studying in the UK, I say ask yourself, what do you have to lose? And look at all you have to gain. We’ve had scholars who were parents, married, and gainfully employed. If there’s a voice inside of you telling you it’s a good idea then you better listen. That’s your destiny calling”.
