Steven Jackson is 21 years of age and recently completed his second of five years in his pursuit of an LLB degree in the Faculty of Law at the University of the West Indies, Mona.  He is treasurer of the Mona Law Society and a member of the team that won the first National Reparations Debate.

Steven was born on Jarrett Lane, off Mountain View Avenue, December 2, 1991 and came to Kingston College, 2004-2011, from Belmont Park Primary School.  Previously he had Norman Gardens Junior and Primary School before moving to Portmore.  While at Kingston College he  became a member of the Kingston College Chapel Choir in 2004 and remains there today as one of its senior members.  He was a member of the Interactive Club and part of the 2011 winning debating team for the Burger King National Schools Debate Parish Finals. His needs came to our attention through Madam Hall and Mrs. Watson and his initial communications with KCOBA USA Inc. was articulate and impressive.  Since 2004, the New York Chapter has been consistent in its support of him.

Steven cites several reasons for his desire to attend K.C. First and foremost his Uncle, Tonie Parks, who he looked up to enormously, and an Old Boy and a NY Chapter Board Member, exemplified “great love, respect and dedication” to the College. He “was inspired by the true resilience shown by the School’s Challenge Quiz team of 2004.”  However, his greatest curiosity came the “first time I heard the world renowned Kingston College Chapel Choir on TV.”  “I was thrilled and totally amazed so I knew my first choice had to be KC.”

In his CXC exams of 2009 he earned one’s in Caribbean History, English Language, Information Technology, Religious Education, two’s in English Literature and Mathematics and three’s in Biology and Physics.  His Cape performance in Units 1 and 2 have been equally impressive.

Steven loves public speaking, politics and issues relating to regional integration and development and hopes to become a criminal lawyer.  We remain determined to do our best to make his dream a reality.
