Seya Wilson speaks of a pragmatic father and an emotional mother - her rock and pillar.

Wilson's parents, attorney-at-law Gladstone Wilson and former Education Minister Maxine Henry-Wilson's, eyes glowed with pride Saturday, February 20, as they watched the rose of their lives blossom into the 21st year of womanhood.

Surrounded by some of the biggest names in the country, it was unusual to see the type of friends that the vibrant Aquarian attracted to the climes of the countryside estate tagged 'Woodstock' in Westmoreland.

"Seya is quite an extraordinary person, her type of reasoning is what will make this country go forward," declared Peter Bunting, general secretary of the People's National Party (PNP).

Responsible and bright

"Seya is phenomenal, she is responsible and bright," said Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett.

The daughter of a staunch politician couldn't be more bipartisan. Her best friend is Finance Minister Audley Shaw's daughter Allison and she parties with all persons, whether supporters of the ruling Jamaica Labour Party, PNP or the National Democratic Movement.

At 21, Seya Wilson has lived a life filled with laughter, humour, lots of love, impacting on the lives of young and old.

Those who turned out for her soiree included: Lorna Golding, wife of Prime Minister Bruce Golding; Robert Russell, Colin Campbell, Roger Clarke, Clive and Carlene Mullings, Basil Waite, Janet Madden, who organised the shindig, Isiaa Madden and Chescot Brownie, Junior Madden, Philip Paulwell, Trisha Thompson, Rose Skinner, Renée Morgan, Lisa Hutchinson, Hilary Brown and Maureen Shaw.
