Saint Lu­cian Re­ceives Top Hon­ors in Lon­don Busi­ness School

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

n 2015 as part of BPP’s 40thanniver­sary ac­tiv­i­ties, the univer­sity made avail­able 50 full tu­ition schol­ar­ships in the fields of law and busi­ness to Saint Lu­cian stu­dents, through the Bri­tish Caribbean Cham­ber of Com­merce and RISE. Fa­cil­i­ta­tion of the ini­tia­tive was made pos­si­ble by the col­lec­tive ef­forts of RISE, Dr. Steven King, Shel­ley Anne Noon and the BCCC; places were of­fered to one of the most mod­ern and suc­cess­ful busi­ness and law uni­ver­si­ties in the UK.

Za­nia Polius was one of the lucky stu­dents to be se­lected. This month, she grad­u­ated at the top of her class from the BPP Busi­ness School in Lon­don. The cer­e­mony took place at Lon­don Guild­hall Gre­sham St, Lon­don. Za­nia re­ceived the high­est achieve­ment award in the BSc Pro­fes­sional Ac­coun­tancy De­gree in ad­di­tion to re­ceiv­ing an im­pres­sive four­teen top per­for­mance cer­tifi­cates.

Orig­i­nally from Den­nery, the 22-year-old chose to ac­cel­er­ate her stud­ies and com­pleted the three year course in two years. While at univer­sity, she was part of a men­tor­ship pro­gram dur­ing her first year which served the pur­pose of help­ing stu­dents adapt to univer­sity life. Za­nia was also a found­ing mem­ber and trea­surer of the BPP Saint Lucia So­ci­ety where she played an ac­tive role in plan­ning events for the school body.

“When we were in­volved in or­ga­niz­ing th­ese schol­ar­ships we had high ex­pec­ta­tions,” John Kennedy, Pres­i­dent of the Bri­tish Caribbean Cham­ber of Com­merce said. “We are not sur­prised, but are very pleased that it was one of the Saint Lucia con­tin­gent that has come out on top. Th­ese stu­dents are fine am­bas­sadors and will bring back the skills and knowl­edge they have gained in Lon­don. The BCCC con­grat­u­lates and salutes this fan­tas­tic re­sult.”

Za­nia now hopes to com­plete her ACCA and be­come a char­tered ac­coun­tant. In her words: “Noth­ing in life comes easy, but with hard work, ded­i­ca­tion, and prayer, the sky is the limit.”

Za­nia Polius re­cently grad­u­ated from the BPP Busi­ness School in Lon­don with top awards.
