The Amazing Verna St. Rose Greaves.

T&T has many problems but one good thing was that it had the most incredible Minister of Gender, Youth and Child development.  Verna St. Rose Greaves is a social activist and a fighter of much ferocity who amazingly ended up as that Minister.  Suddenly the talk became about human rights for all people and she was the champion of that fight. Last Friday she was removed from Cabinet for political reasons and my heart broke. She is the most wonderful compassionate person I know and she is a friend.  If the world were ending I would want to call Auntie Verna.

Here is Part one of my interview with her today.

  1. Verna has contributed significantly in her previous ministry and I quite sure that her contribution will be rewarded in some form or other by the PM. she will still have her fingers in the pie… she will be power behind the scenes…
