By Gyasi Gonzales

A TRINIDAD and Tobago University of the West Indies student of Political Science and Law at Cave Hill, Barbados died on Thursday morning just before she was about to board a flight to Trinidad following which she would have gone over to Tobago where she lives.

Shenice Davis aged 23 lived with her grandmother in Bon Accord in Tobago.

Davis' cause of death had not yet been determined up to press time last night and it is not known whether a post mortem will be done.

She wanted to be an attorney her friend who only wanted to be identified as Therese told the Express last night.

A tearful Therese continued that, "she very lovable, quiet and easy to talk to".

She added, "She was a great motivator for me and I could have spoken to her about anything because she was like a big sister to me."

Davis lived with her grandmother in Bon Accord, Tobago as her mother passed away a few years ago.

According to a report in the Barbados Nation newspaper, Davis collapsed on Thursday morning at the island's Grantley Adams International Airport and was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

"Shenice was a quiet girl but to those who knew her she was a joy to be around," said Therese.
