My name is Ilvia Lisbeth, I am 17 years old and I am in my final year of secondary school.
I arrived at UETIRG in 2018 because I wanted to learn new things and change my routine that I had at home.

Dear Brothers, Sisters and Family,
It matters where we look with our eyes and it matters what our hearts are focused on. Many have set their eyes on the world, on wealth and on self, and it isn’t helping them find true happiness.

It’s kite season in Grenada. Each year from around January to May the wind blows nearly every day. There is almost always a gentle breeze except for when there are tropical storms in the Atlantic which block the northeasterly trade winds, but the winter and spring months are kite season.Read More
