Kizzy Thomas, who hails from the John Hughes community, holds an Associate’s Degree in Hospitality Management from the Antigua Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute. She is a graduate of All Saints Secondary School. The 25 year old loves sports, shopping and travel, and wants to become a flight attendant some day.
She shared that her determination to be an example to the youth led her to enter the Queen of Carnival competition.
“I would like to be a young person that other young people want to emulate,” she said.
Kizzy believes that gender equality in the workplace is one of the most pressing issues facing young women today, and says that women like Joanne Massiah and Samantha Marshall provide inspiration for others.
“In some workplaces, women are treated like second class citizens and to see that we just elected two women to the House of Parliament is an inspiration to young women that we can achieve whatever we want in life.”
She says the public needs to look no further than the theme for this year’s show – “Be bold, be different, be extraordinary” – for a reason to come see her on July 28.
“I will be bold, I will be different, and I will most definitely be extraordinary.”
