Christlyn makes granny proud
Elizabeth Williams Tobago Bureau
Eighty-four-year-old Edith Moore-Elliott is proud of her granddaughter, Christlyn Moore, the soon to be sworn in Justice Minister of the country.
Interviewed from her Lambeau home in Tobago yesterday, Moore- Elliott expressed delight at her granddaughter’s accomplishment.
Moore-Elliott said: “I was right here in my bedroom when I received the news. I was listening and did not want to be disturbed. I felt so proud.”
She said Christlyn grew up in the village of Lambeau and was a well educated child, who always knew what she wanted.
“Since she was a child ... she wanted to be a lawyer but we laughed at her, but she knew what she wanted,” she said.
Christlyn Moore started her education at the Lambeau Anglican School, then it was off to Bishop's, University of the West Indies and then to Barbados. Moore-Elliott said it was because of the family’s educational background Christlyn had progressed to where she was today. Her new post, she said, would not be a walk in the park.
“It is very hard because remember she is now going in something new, so it would be hard but she will get through. She is encouraging the young people of the country to work hard to achieve their goals,” she said.
