Akino Lindsay… World Martial Art Champion… a Fighter for Peace

In recent times a number of young Georgians have made news in a big way. In this update, AKINO LINDSAY and YOHAN LEE are featured.

Akino Lindsay is no ordinary young man. He graduated from St. George’s College in 2012 and then went on to Sixth Form. Known for his tremendous sense of humor and easy going style, the young man started to learn taekwondo while at STGC. 

He was part of the STGC 2014 Taekwondo team that stunned Calabar High, the taekwondo stalwart, in champion tournaments. He has multiple World Championship titles. In 2015, at age 18, he won the International Sport Kick Boxing Association Championship and again recently in Greece for the 2018 World title. At 17, he was the Pan-American Champion while still in high school.

But, he has another side: a passion for the development of inner city youths. He coaches martial arts in volatile inner city communities in Kingston. The UWI software engineering student is a UNICEF recognized partner and is a Michael Johnson Youth Leader.

Daniel Raphael, STGC Graduate Shines in Actuarial Science

Daniel Raphael, STGC Class 2011 is making headway in his journey to become an actuary. Like so many, he is from humble circumstances and found himself 'distracted' at one point in time. However, harsh words from his father, made him rethink and by the time he graduated from STGC, he was a recognized top performer. 

While doing STGC's community service for graduation requirements, he stared to work with the Grace Kennedy Community Development Foundation. This opened up a whole new world of experience and enlightenment. He taught maths in inner city communities and also at STGC to students that needed help in the subject.

He would go on to teach at St. George's College before going on to start actuarial science two years ago at UWI. He is making waves as he progresses.
