AT FIRST GLANCE, Tamieka Morris appears to be an unassuming young woman who quietly goes about her daily student life. However, speak to her only once and you will recognise in an instant her passion for people and advocacy; glance at her twice and you can identify the gait of a powerful leader on a path to making the world a better place.
Morris is a final year Social Sciences student, pursuing an undergraduate degree in Sociology, with a minor in Gender and Development Studies. Having started at The UWI, Mona in 2013, she became a part of The UWI Mentorship Programme, which is coordinated by the Office of Student Services and Development (OSSD) on campus. “I searched for a programme that would help to boost my career path and discovered The UWI Mentorship Programme. The programme gave me the opportunity to interact with more people and aided in my growth through vision mapping.” She told UWIMONA Now that the mentorship programme also boosted her confidence and compelled her to socialise more with others. This formed the foundation of her current path as a volunteer.
