2021 High School Scholar
St Ignatius Catholic School
Jade is taking her GCSE exams this year, with biology, Spanish and English literature her current favourite subjects. On top of her academic attainments, Jade plays the clarinet, participates in Mentoring Cayman and joined her school robotics team – but her first love is dance. Having danced since she was three years old, she was recently promoted to Head Intern and Substitute Teacher at her dance studio.
This scholarship has given me a lot of self confidence in my academic capabilities which has transferred into all aspects of my life.
Jade’s experience dancing, performing and interning at Centre Pointe Dance Studio has fuelled more than her love of ballet, tap, jazz and contemporary dance. She has also learned life skills such as leadership, customer service and organisation and discovered joy in teaching young children.
Jade’s diverse interests could take her down any number of different career paths, from law or journalism to dance or even forensic pathology. Jade is keeping her options open, but wants to find a job she loves and to make a positive impact.
