The Embassies of the Eastern Caribbean States to the Kingdom of Morocco (ECS Embassies) extends its warmest congratulations and highest regards to Dominican, Terry Gregory Lovell for his recent academic accomplishments as an undergraduate student at Groupe Miage, a private education institution in the Kingdom of Morocco.
Lovell’s was recently recognized as a top academic performer in his faculty at a graduation ceremony held in Rabat, the capital city of Morocco.
As a participant in the ongoing academic scholarship programme extended by the Kingdom of Morocco to nationals of the Member States of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), Lovell’s hard work was rewarded with the presentation of his Bachelor’s degree in the field of Computer Science with a specialisation in Systems and Network Administration.“After such a journey, and the experience of living in such a different society, I have decided to continue doing so for a bit longer,” Lovell said commenting on his plans after graduating.
“Over the years I have learned the value of being self-sufficient and my ultimate goal is to strengthen my resolve to survive, thrive and solve problems, connect with human beings and learn their languages and customs in order to get closer to the answers that I ultimately seek,” Lovell continued. “What am I? Where do I come from? And where am I going? Until I solve that puzzle, I will continue to seek knowledge and develop solutions, and hopefully soon my beloved country, Dominica, and family can benefit from my struggle.”
