By Kizzy ColemanHer goal in life is simply this “no matter what career path I take, I must be able to make a difference”.And a difference she is making, but, most of all, inspirational is what she has become to all young women in Guyana.Twenty-nine-year-old Attorney-at-Law Latoya Roberts is an exceptional young woman with a determination that could move mountains. However, the person that she is today is one who struggled, one who came from very humble beginnings.Latoya RobertsRoberts spent her childhood days on the West Bank of Demerara (WBD) in a village called Vreed-en-Rust.She grew up with her mother, Myrtle Peters, who was a farmer and basket weaver. Her days then would be spent journeying to school via boat and in the afternoons assisting in the garden or farm; some days, she also wove baskets.However, with the fire burning inside to pursue a better quality of education even at that tender age, Roberts was sent to live with relatives in Georgetown where she attended the Tucville Primary School.“However, for the holiday season, I would usually go back home with my mother,” the young woman explained.Following her performance at the Secondary School Entrance Examination (SSEE), she gained a place at the North Georgetown Secondary School which was a disappointment to her, as it was her dream to attend President’s College.As they say, a dream can always be realised as long as you put in the hard work and this became true in Roberts’ case.Her determination became even stronger to attend President’s College and this motivated her to work hard, and this she did, graduating at the top of her class after writing the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations.She was able to gain a place at President’s College as a Sixth Form student and she then set her sights on studying law.“After finishing CXC, I was not sure as to what area I wanted to pursue; however, based on the grades that I achieved, it was suggested to me that I should pursue law. I was always very vocal; public speaking also always came naturally to me so in Sixth Form at the President’s College, I started out in that field.”According to Roberts, law was her choice not just because it is lucrative but because it was seen as an opportunity to give a voice to the voiceless and those who cannot otherwise represent themselves.“I was motivated to continue to pursue law, because I saw it as my opportunity to effect positive changes in society especially coming from where I came from. I wanted to become a role model.”Journeying to achieve that dreamThe young Attorney described her journey as one that was arduous and financially challenging.“My journey was life changing, arduous because law is a journey that requires much financially and as my background was so simple, this was something that my parents could not afford. So it called for much patience, much planning and as a Christian, much prayers and dependence on God.”When she graduated Sixth Form, she continued to pursue her studies in law at the University of Guyana and successfully graduated. However, not being financially able to move onto the Hugh Wooding Law School (HWLS) like her colleagues, Roberts had to seek employment leaving her studies behind.However, the fire within her continued to burn. “I always kept my eyes on the prize,” she revealed.A few years later, she was able to write the entrance examination and was accepted into the HWLS.“I went to law school and that in itself was a miracle because I did not have all of the finances, but God provided. My dad worked very hard and I got a lot of support from my church family as well.”Roberts graduated as the best Guyanese law student for 2016 and was treated to a grand welcome at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).“At law school, going through the different courses, excelling in some, learning in other areas and then the icing on the cake, graduating as Guyana’s best law student for 2016, that was affirmation that this is what is for me and that the journey is now complete. So for me, the whole journey, it was an arduous one as I said, but it is one that has taught me discipline, how to be tenacious and how to focus on your goals and continuing working towards it, defying the odds and difficulty that may come along the way.”Her encouragement“Each young woman in Guyana needs to take a moment to think about the direction in which they want their life to go in. So, the first thing I would say to them is to set a goal; there should always be something that you are working towards. And once you have set that goal and made that plan, come hill or high water, do not allow anything to deter you from achieving that goal. Life can be extremely difficult, I can attest to this as I have experienced it first hand, but you can battle through if you continue to put in the work and explore all the options.”Roberts further encouraged: “Young women, please surround yourselves with people who are positive and who would inspire and motivate you. Most importantly, pursue a relationship with God; it gives you a basis and a foundation because when those around you may fail, God will always be there. Hard work always pays off; it may take one year or even 20 years, but continue to be consistent and it will pay off, I can attest to this.”
Chelsea could be without striker Diego Costa for their next Premier League clash against Arsenal 1 Diego Costa is a doubt for Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League clash with Arsenal.The Brazil-born striker was forced off during the 3-3 draw with Everton, and he could consequently miss out on the trip to the Emirates Stadium.The injury may not be as serious as first feared, with the Blues confirming the 27-year-old has bruised his shin, rather than fracturing his tibia, yet it is now a waiting game to see if he recovers in time.The defending champions could therefore be without their first choice centre forward against a side looking for revenge after their 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.So, who do Chelsea fans what to see lead the attack should Costa be ruled out of action?Find out below…
The Highland High girls’ soccer team won’t see Janet Mendez for at least another 10 days, and possibly as long as three weeks. But the Bulldogs gave Mendez a nice going-away present Wednesday night in their Golden League opener against Antelope Valley, recording a 6-0 victory. Mendez left Thursday for Mexico City, where her performance during a week-long training session could land her a spot on Mexico’s 25-player roster as the Tricolores begin their march toward the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup in China. Qualifying begins in late spring, and the 2006 CONCACAF Gold Cup – the final qualifying tournament – will be held in November. Although she’s only 17, Mendez has trained with and played in international exhibitions with Mexico’s women’s national soccer team the past year. The stakes promise to be a little higher this time around. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson “I know if I try really hard, I think I can make it,” said Mendez, who has played only 20 minutes with Highland this season. “It’s been difficult because I want to be able to play with my (high school) team, but if I make the (national) team, I think it would be my greatest accomplishment.” Mendez, who had 12 goals and 11 assists for Highland last season, played in international friendlies against the United States and Canada last summer, securing her spot among 28 players invited back for this final tryout. “(Playing in those games) was a very big thing for me, because there were a lot of people out there watching,” said Mendez, who played half of both games. “My biggest motivation is to represent the country. When you have that uniform on you, it’s something different than you’ve ever experienced. It inspires you more, and you feel like you can do anything.” If Mendez is selected, she’ll be with the team until Jan. 27. If she doesn’t make the cut for the final 25, she’ll return around Jan. 14. Against Antelope Valley, Samantha Johnson scored three goals and Courtney Morrell had three assists for Highland, which appears ready to make a run at another league title, with or without Mendez. “I met with the girls after practice Monday and told them to just get used to playing without her,” Highland coach Juan Paolo said. “I told them that we are a very good team and capable of repeating (as Golden League champion) without her, and that if she does come back, we’ll be that much better with her in there.” Welcome to the show: Highland and Quartz Hill have combined to win the past nine league titles, and the winner of tonight’s rivalry game can establish itself as one of the frontrunners to capture this year’s crown. This year, it appears two other teams are ready to challenge the Bulldogs and Rebels for league supremacy. Lancaster (10-0-2) established itself as a title contender with a 2-0 victory over reigning league champion Highland (10-2-2) in the Dec. 29 Lancaster tournament final. Knight lost to Lancaster 3-2 in Wednesday’s league opener. Paolo said the emergence of Lancaster and Knight should serve as a wake-up call to his players, who lost only to Quartz Hill before running off 10 consecutive league victories last season. “Now we know we’re not invincible,” Paolo said. “People have been talking all season about Knight, but nobody’s been talking about (Lancaster). Now we know we have at least three teams that are capable of beating us if we don’t come out ready to play. “I think this (loss) opened up their eyes. It showed them that they can’t just walk out on the field with the Bulldog on their uniform and presume the game is over.” Lancaster coach Rick Acuna knows there is more work to be done. “At this point, five or six wins was the best we’ve done entering league,” Acuna said. “This team is special. … They are a team on and off the field. We just want to represent the school and the community and continue to play hard.” Let there be light: Quartz Hill and Littlerock were unable to play Wednesday’s league opener because of a power failure at Littlerock High. The game was rescheduled for Saturday. Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BURBANK – The Walt Disney Co. will cut the number of films it releases each year from 18 to eight as part of a larger reduction, trade papers reported Wednesday. The slate reduction comes as the Burbank-based entertainment giant plans job cuts that, according to sources who spoke last May, could amount to as much as 10 percent of the company’s work force. Daily Variety said all the movies released will be Disney-branded, suggesting diminished roles for its Touchstone label. The Hollywood trade paper said a Disney announcement was expected within 10 days. Burbank-based Disney, basking in the glow of a record $135.6 million debut weekend box office for “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” wouldn’t discuss the report. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“We are constantly evaluating our business to make it better and more efficient,” Disney spokeswoman Heidi Trotta said in a prepared statement. Disney’s move reflects a trend in Hollywood to cut costs amid increasing overhead, production budgets and marketing bills. Disney has said for some time it was going to cut its total number of films and concentrate on Disney-branded offerings, which make more money than those released by the studio’s Touchstone label. The studio has already greatly reduced the number of films released under its Miramax banner. During Disney’s past four quarterly media conference calls, CEO Robert Iger has said cutbacks were coming but didn’t discuss details. “It becomes a much better investment for us when we make a Disney-branded film,” Iger said last September. “We’re not going to go out of the non-Disney-branded live-action business, but there has been a dramatic shift.” Wall Street sees the move as necessary if the entertainment giant wants to see double-digit growth, said analyst David Miller, managing director of the brokerage firm Sanders Morris Harris Group. “Most of the street was onto the fact that Disney-branded film returns were greater,” he said. Besides its success with “Pirates,” Disney’s fortunes have been lifted recently by its Pixar-animated movie “Cars,” which has earned more than $205 million this summer. But the studio has also endured disappointments, including “Stick It,” “Annapolis” and “The Wild.” Disney’s annual motion-picture capital allocation is believed to be $450 million, Miller said. Spreading that amount over eight films instead of 18 could be better in a variety of ways, including cutting marketing and production costs, he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL beat the students of the University of Ulster at Jordanstown in wet and windy conditions in Ballybofey tonight.It was a good work-out for Jim McGuinness’s men as they ran out 0-14 to 0-10 in front of just a few hundred supporters.The county side were just too strong in most areas of the park for the students and the final scoreline probably flattered the visitors. There was a poignant moment before the game as players and supporters observed a minute’s silence in memory of Michaela McAreavey.Mattie Donnelly opened the scoring for Jordanstown but Donegal’s Ryan Bradley quickly equalised.Donegal opened up a 0-7 to 0-4 lead at half-time, and there were concerns among the home fans when Donnelly got the first score of the second half to reduce the deficit to just two points.They needn’t have worried however as Molloy scored twice to take the gap to five points ten minutes into the half. Both sides exchanged more scores but Donegal held out for a deserved win.FULL RESULTSBarrett McKenna CupSection ADonegal 0-14 0-10 UUJ Section BMonaghan 0-9 0-13 Queen’sCavan 1-10 1-12 DerrySection C Down 3-11 2-15 ArmaghAntrim 2-12 0-09 St Mary’sDONEGAL BREEZE PAST UUJ AT BALLYBOFEY was last modified: January 16th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
