Tanya Mair

Versan Educational services on Constant Spring Road, St Andrew, has hit the jackpot with its students being placed in some of the most prestigious schools in the United States with full scholarships. In years to come, these women will be great achievers and Flair will be following their progress. You go girls!

Tanya Mair

Tanya Mair loves the sciences, and though relatively undecided about where she expects to find her niche at Harvard University, she is certain it will be in the sciences. Her teacher at Versan describes her as demure, yet focused, and that she is sometimes unaware of her potential as she shies away from the 'limelight'.

A past student of Campion College, Mair received the Top Technical Drawing scores in CXCs and was awarded the 'True Campionite Award'. She was also president of Peer Counselling, Interact and Musical Theatre clubs.

She received a solid SAT score to gain admission to Harvard.

Anisha Khemlani

Anisha Khemlani is the most phlegmatic of this college-bound group. On the surface, one sees an ambitious young woman who is always in the upper percentile of her upper-six group at Immaculate Conception High School.

Underneath is a mean tennis player with a matchless wit that serves to disarm her peers, leaving them in peels of laughter.

Accepted to Georgetown and Duke universities, Khemlani will be an economics major. This in in tandem with her desire to foster change in Jamaica through economic policies. Part of her sixth-form studies was to review the Programme of Advancement Through Health and education in Jamaica.

With her love for foreign languages, economics and mathematics, Khemlani is sure to do well.
