The winner of the 34th annual Hal Jackson's Talented Teens International® Scholarship Program is Nicola Dalrymple, a native of Trinidad & Tobago, who is a triple threat in the performing arts world because she sings, dances and acts. After winning the highly competitive program in New York during the summer of 2004 at Aaron Davis Hall, Nicola, who attends Bishop's High School in Tobago, said, “I am truly blessed and looking forward to an extremely exciting year”. She is undecided as to which college she will attend but knows she will major in medicine and become a pediatrician.
This 16 year-old says that “success is not measured by the position you attain or the achievements made in life, but the obstacles you overcome to get there, by the grace of God.”
Nicola has won trips to London with air travel sponsored by the Alken Tours, a trip to the British Virgin Islands sponsored by the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, a trip to Anguilla sponsored by the Anguilla Tourist Board, a $5,000 scholarship to the college of her choice as well as other gifts and prizes.
