Junior Achievement (“JA”) has been active in the Cayman Islands since 1991 and is the world’s largest not-for-profit educational organisation offering in-school and after-school practical business programmes.
Being a Junior Achievement alumna, Kristina first gained an interest in business and, in particular, marketing, during her time in the JA Company Programme. Her passion for marketing grew after leaving the programme, which led her to pursue her tertiary education in this field and subsequently a career in marketing.
At only 24 years old, Kristina looks forward to the wealth of knowledge she will gain from the existing Board members and is excited to offer the group her fresh and young perspective.
Kristina says: “I am thrilled to be a part of Junior Achievement once again, and am ever grateful to the Board for affording me this fantastic opportunity. I am eager to begin working with the upcoming achievers and other alumni and look forward to having a positive impact on the Cayman community. ”
Paul Byles, President of Junior Achievement in the Cayman Islands, adds: “On behalf of the Junior Achievement board I am very pleased to welcome Kristina as a new board member this year. As a former Junior Achiever Kristina is in a great position to assist us as we continue to provide a positive impact on the lives of many students in Cayman across the various schools.”
Kristina is currently employed as a Marketing Assistant at Campbells and is excited to bring her recent experience and insight gained on the job to the JA table. Sara Jan, Practice Manager and former JA Board member says “We are proud that Kristina has decided to offer her personal time to the JA Programme and that she recognises the vital role it plays in the community.” Sara adds, “Kristina has our full support.’
