'I Have a Dream for Belize' Essay Winner

Congratulations, Elvis Usher, for winning the 'I Have a Dream for Belize' essay competition! From his essay: 'Tengo un sueno that one day one will be proud of their ethnicity without trespassing into ethnocentrism and paramount taking pride in their unique identity that is Belizean.' Awesome! It must have been hard to choose a winner.

"The U.S. Embassy is proud to announce that Mr. Elvis Usher is the winner of the "I Have a Dream for Belize" Essay Contest. CONGRATULATIONS!!! The second place winner is Mr. Javier Candelario Romero, and there was a tie for third place by Mr. Dale McDougall and Ms. Maryam Abdul. We received over 50 submissions and ALL of them were very insightful. We've compiled the quotes that stood out from all of the essay submissions and posted them below. Belize has A LOT to be proud of, all of the dreams were inspiring! Thanks to everyone who participated!"
