be gov­erned by fiscal rules sim­i­lar to those of Chile’s.

“This would min­imise the ef­fects of global fluc­tu­a­tions of oil prices whilst en­sur­ing the coun­try does not be­come overly re­liant on oil rev­enues,” he added.

Deyal noted that while the dis­cov­ery “has the po­ten­tial to sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the GDP of Guyana,” there is need for the funds to be care­fully man­aged. come true.”

As the chair­per­son and deputy-chair­per­son of Keith Hunte Hall, Cave Hill cam­pus, Deyal had to rep­re­sent over 60 res­i­dents on the stu­dent’s guild. He was in­stru­men­tal in se­cur­ing a do­na­tion of US$1,000 from the First Cit­i­zens Bank for benches for the hall’s res­i­dents, and co-man­aged 20 stu­dents and US$7,500 for UWI Car­ni­val’s Adren­a­line Band, which sup­plied 150 cos­tumes.

He was also the rep­re­sen­ta­tive on the finance com­mit­tee of the stu­dents’ guild for 350 res­i­dents from the three halls at the Cave Hill cam­pus.

A sports lov­ing per­son, Deyal rep­re­sented An­tigua and Bar­buda in swim­ming in the 2009 OECS swim­ming cham­pi­onships, and played for An­tigua and Bar­buda’s youth cricket teams and the Lee­ward Is­lands cricket team be­tween 2012 and 2014. Deyal stated that aca­demics and sports com­ple­ment each other per­fectly.

“Sports has helped to build my work ethic, dis­ci­pline, and team work skills, all of which have con­trib­uted to my aca­demic per­for­mance. At the same time, sports has also of­fered me an av­enue for re­lax­ing and es­cap­ing the world of books and re­search pa­pers for brief mo­ments,” he said.

Not­ing that he would love to see the Caribbean youths in­crease their par­tic­i­pa­tion in all sports, es­pe­cially cricket, he said, “Sports could help to do this for lots of other young peo­ple as well.”

The per­for­mance of the West Indies women’s team over the past few years, he said “is ev­i­dence to the power of sport. Not only has the team done ex­tremely well with lim­ited re­sources, but they are em­pow­er­ing women in the re­gion and re­mind­ing us all of the strength of a united Caribbean.”

Thank­ing all, es­pe­cially his fam­ily, who have helped him on his jour­ney this far, he said, “I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port you have given me and I hope to serve you and the Caribbean in what­ever ca­pac­ity I can.”
