This week’s Young Professional, K’Nesha A. Greenaway, is on the path to big dreams of her own, including becoming a Barrister, which will ultimately will propel her to becoming a Judge and then opening her own law firm.

K’Nesha is the proud daughter of Suzanne and Dean H. Greenaway aka 'The Sportsman'. She is currently employed as a Legal Cadet and Judicial assistant at the Supreme Court Registry and this will assist her in making those dreams a reality.

Her responsibilities include being efficient and professional in providing administrative support to the judges by performing functions relating to administration of justice.

“I look forward to attending the monthly Legal Council meetings which focus on legal matters and the legal profession in the BVI. As a result I’m kept abreast of changes in the legislation.”

Prior to working with the Government, our young professional volunteered at the University of Manchester and BPP University’s Legal Advice Centres.

Early Education

K’Nesha A. Greenaway received her early education at Althea Scatliffe Primary School and then Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).

After high school, Ms Greenaway attended H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) between 2009-2011, where she studied General Studies with a concentration in Humanities. In addition, she became a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honour Society.

Influential persons who have inspired our young professional to be hardworking and focused are, Martin Luther King Jr., Lord Denning and Nelson Mandela.

“These are people who paved the way to eradicate social injustices. It has always been my goal to assist the underprivileged and I see the law as an avenue to rectify some of society’s injustices.”

Ms Greenaway added that she was also motivated by her family and friends both in the Virgin Islands and overseas.

Advice to young people

Young professional K’Nesha A. Greenaway encourages young people to fulfill their potential through hard work and dedication.
