PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER
Hello, my name is Joseann Antoine. I attended Diamond Vale Government Primary School, and in 2012, I began my high school journey at Providence Girls’ Catholic school. Here I gained knowledge and developed my practical skills, talents and abilities which I showcase today. I’m currently enrolled in the University of the West Indies and I’m in my second year pursuing my BSc. in Banking and Finance with a minor in Accounts. As the Public relations officer for the MSU, I will ensure I put my “best foot forward” in reaching out to other tertiary institutions to get them on board with the Constitution of The Management Society of the University of the West Indies. This way we can develop relationships with such institutions and obtain linkages to work together as one society. By doing this, the name of the MSU will be heard and known beyond the university. I will ensure we expand our charitable aspect by reaching out further to those in need be it locally and regionally. I enjoy helping and motivating others in ways in which I can push an individual in believing in themselves. I also enjoy a challenge as it will push myself to go beyond my capabilities and be opened to new ventures. In my free time I enjoy outdoor adventures, making crafts and spending time with friends and family.
