Sherona Drummond a graduate of The University of the West Indies—Mona looking for a challenging position as a Social Worker which she is convinced will allow her to develop her skills and utilize existing ones.
Since qualifying in 2011 Sherona has looked for work in Schools, Law Firms, Hospitals etc. In order to develop a further understanding in her field she thought it wise to assist in the area of volunteering with older children as so far she had only interacted at the Basic School level age of 3-6 years.
Sherona volunteers for KASSSI at the Petersville All Age School one to three days per week since November 2012 when she is not attending interviews or volunteering with the Child Development Agency.
