Undoubtedly, one important ingredient which is sometimes inadvertently overlooked whenever one seeks to achieve success in attaining difficult goals throughout life, is an unwavering belief and faith in a higher being.

This week’s young professional, Kerine C. Henry has managed to harness her faith in a tremendous and unwavering manner over her years of striving to achieve the goals she has set out for her career and has come to realise that the end result is often well worth the sacrifice of the journey that came before.

The eldest of three siblings, Kerine hails from Long Look on Tortola where she attended the Willard Wheatley Primary School and later, the then BVI High School.

After graduating from high school, our Young Professional sought and acquired a job at the Water and Sewerage Department (WS&D) first as a Receptionist and later in the Customer Service Department which has allowed her the opportunity to acquire a well-rounded experience within the organisation.

Having developed an interest in Accounting over time at WS&D, Kerine later received a transfer to the Accounts Payables section where she started working as an Accounts Officer and has held this position for the last several years. “I like it there and I really enjoy it,” Kerine said of her post.

During her tenure at the Water & Sewerage Department, Kerine was also able to attend the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) on a part time basis where she graduated Cum Laude while acquiring an Associate Degree in Human Services.

She explained that this field of study has offered her not only an opportunity to better deal with different personalities in the workforce, but also to have a better understanding and appreciation of the different experiences that others may bring to the table and how this impacts on their interaction with their colleagues at work.

Kerine has also started work on realising her dream of becoming a certified Accountant by acquiring qualifications in this field through studies in the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

While she has continued to experience several challenges in her pursuit of higher education, Kerine remains undaunted and is steadfast in her hopes of being able to complete the hard work she has already began. Facing these challenges has been no easy task and Kerine’s strong faith in God and firm beliefs have certainly kept her afloat in this regard. Growing up in a closely knit single-parent family, she has learnt the art of adapting to a variety of situations through her experiences over the years.

When not hard at work, she spends her free time reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends at the beach or chilling with family and friends and is especially fond of the time she gets to spend with her nephew. She also does volunteer work with the BVI Girl Guides Association and is deeply involved with her church, the Upper Room Victory Church at Little Dix Hill.

Kerine’s stern advice to young persons is to always keep believing in themselves. “Don’t let anyone tell you, you can’t,” she said. She also encouraged persons to remember what Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

She also offered that life sometimes takes unexpected turns and things don’t always turn out the way you planned. “However, don’t let the pot holes detour you or let the speed bumps slow you from achieving your goals.”
