When Kimberley Mayers graduated from Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad last year, she did so having copped the No.1 spot among Barbadians studying at that prestigious institution.

For 30-year-old Mayers, it was a dream came true, a dream she believes became a reality after her consistent prayers, prayers of her family and well-wishers, as well as significant sacrifice and lots of hard work on her part.

The former student of Hindsbury Primary, The St Michael School and Combermere School was more than honoured to share her faith and her long, hard journey at law school, when she delivered her speech at the Supreme Court last October, while being called to the Bar.

“In preparing my speech on behalf of my colleagues I knew I had to share my God and faith,” Mayers, a member of the Chapman Street Church of God, The City, disclosed.

She spoke of how God brought her through and how her faith in Him helped her to weather the challenges she faced as a student in a strange land.

“My faith has played and continues to play a big part in my studies and in my life as a practising lawyer. Even the decision to go back to law school was not made lightly. It was the path that God was leading me down,” Mayers explained. (CH)
