Up to Monday night, 23-year-old Gabriela Morris was just a university student focused on youth representation.
But today, the Montego Bay native holds the title of being the country’s youngest ever senator.
“Life comes at you fast,” she said, reflecting on her historic rise to the Upper House.
Still “revelling in the moment”, the opposition senator, who currently studies at The University of the West Indies, Mona, said that she is ready to learn, grow, and serve.
“There is the question of youth, as expected, and experience, as expected, but I believe that I have amassed some sort of experience in my own way and I believe that there was something that was seen in me that warranted me being appointed to the Senate,” she told The Gleaner on Tuesday, minutes before she was sworn in.
