================= Belizean-American news anchor Kendis Gibson speaks to hundreds of students at SPHS
Emmy award-winning journalist Belizean-American journalist Kendis Gibson visited the San Pedro High School (SPHS) on Wednesday, May 29th and spoke to hundreds of students at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium about pursuing their goals and the importance of education. Gibson is currently a news anchor for MSNBC in New York City, New York USA, and his appearance at SPHS was made possible by the U.S Embassy in Belize through the Public Affairs Department.
He shared with the audience his struggles as a little boy while growing in Belize City. But things changed at the age of 10 when his family was able to relocate to the U.S. “I began to focus on things that I enjoyed the most, and then I was drawn to television,” he said. Gibson stated that it was not easy getting to work in television, but that he never gave up. Determination and the love for his dreams were the driving engine for his success.Click here to read the rest of the article and see more photos in the San Pedro Sun
