We have had a phenomenal Leadership Summit 2019.  The participants were all tremendously impacted by the quality and quantity of information they received.Here is a testimony by one of the enthralled participants Frank Wilmans:

“My name is Frank Wilmans and I attended the VLF leadership summit  2019 on the 2nd day thanks to a friend, partner and owner of the Hemsway Real Estate company. We attended this event to gain knowledge and experiences to help us grow the company even more. This was my first time to this Summit and it was really engaging. I learned more than I expected and I’m grateful that Mr. and Mrs. Cotton organized such a respectful event.

"Apostle Hilton Albert reminded me of the importance of prayer which is good for a healthy spirit. I thank the Lord Almighty every day for the blessings I receive from him and it goes without saying that without his guidance we wouldn’t reach this far.

"Dr. Tasheena Maccow Thomas was insightful; I truly respect her and her knowledge in healthy food and herbs that help the human mind body and spirit.  Thanks to her I have changed certain habits I had prior to her seminar regarding food and drinks. I never thought that health could make such an impact in our daily lives as entrepreneurs. It also goes to show that there are locals here with businesses that are making a difference in our society.

"Dr. Erna Mae Francis Cotton and her husband Mr. Roy Cotton Jr. shared a documentary with us that I can easily relate to. “The root causes of dis-ease” is something everybody should know about since our mind and emotions can change how our bodies react. Stress can destroy your body and bring in negative influences around; but positivity can heal it and bring in blessings as well.  I’m a believer of that, and I practice this every day.

"I had known about the health expert the Honourable, Priest Kailash for a while now, and I was happy to see him at the Summit. He is a very intelligent man and people like him inspire me ‘cuz they are local people with great minds who have the strength to make positive changes in our lives for the better.

"Finally, Ms Ashley Cheeks, MBA who did her best to make it to Sint Maarten, was a blessing. People like her are what the youth of Sint Maarten need if they want to start their own business. I was surprised how many people had business ideas at the Summit, which proves that help is needed in that area. It takes patience, hard work and a strong mentality to start your own business and this knowledge is not something you can find in school. I was happy myself that I had a chance to speak to her and I am very thankful for that.

"To the organizers of the VLF leadership summit, “Keep up the Good Work.” This experience was worth it.”

Not only were the participants enthralled with the Summit, but so too were the facilitators.Here is a sound byte from Mrs. Ashley Cheeks about her experience at VLF's Leadership Summit 2019:

Where Are The Leaders I Was Asked, 
I Said, "Just Look, They're Everywhere", 
The Searchers Told Me Solemnly, 
To Meet The Criteria None Compare ! 
We've Searched The Highest Halls Of Learning, 
Scoured Each Country, State And Nation, 
Have Met With Barons Of Industry, 
And Those Who Sit In The Loftiest Of Stations !! 
So I Questioned Of These Seekers, 
What Qualities Should One Possess, 
What Manifests Within A Person, 
That Shows They Pass The Leader Test ?! 
They Must Use Their Influence For Others Sake, 
Is The First Answer That They Gave, 
To Make Decisions Not For Self But Tribe, 
Is The Most Perfect Quality To Save ! 
If They Can Simplify The Complex Chaos, 
To Bring Clarity To The Same, 
That Makes A Leader Men Will Follow, 
Not A Leader Just By Name !! 
A Leader Must Be Creative, 
And Must Make His Team Creative Too, 
Then No Task Will Be Insurmountable, 
There Won't Be A Single Thing They Cannot DO !! 
To Be Brave, Bold And Full Of Courage, 
When Facing Trials Great Or Small, 
This Will Make Your Team Stand Firm Behind You, 
With Combined Strength So You Won't Fall !! 
One Possessed Of Inner Vision, 
And Can Keep It In Their Sight, 
This Is Someone Who Will Move Mountains, 
A Leader Of Strength And Might !! 
If They Can Foster The Right Environment, 
Create A Culture To Succeed, 
Then We Don't Have To Seek Much Further, 
This One Was Born To Lead !! 
You Know They Are A Leader, 
When They Consistently Show Great Insight, 
Their Decisions Are Best For The Team, 
Even When The Majority Don't Think They're Right !! 
Where Are The Leaders You May Ask, 
Are They Just The Ones With Riches And With Fame, 
Well, If You Really Need To Find A Leader, 
Look In The Mirror And Call Your Name !!!!

Apostle Napolina Richardson

“Apostle Napolina Richardson along with her husband Kurt Richardson are the founders and CEOs of The Repairers of Broken Walls International Ministries (ROBWIM).

"She pioneered this work because she has been involved in education and ministry for over 30 years and realized that there is a void that she could contribute to filling.

"She envisioned and started ROBWIM because she has this indubitable duty to see people excel, reach their full capacity and fulfill the purpose for which they were created.

"Her fair and unbiased method of handling sensitive situations has enabled her to guide countless people towards successfully working through and triumphing over difficult situations.

"ROBWIM offers counselling, raising awareness of the depraved conditions in St. Maarten and other Caribbean islands, drug rehabilitation, shelter and relief to persons before and after the hurricanes

"Richardson's foundation represents her global vision to help in whatever way she can to repair broken lives and set them on the path to restoration and recovery. 

"She is not only a visionary leader in St. Maarten but has expanded her reach to the USA where she established a branch of ROBWIM in New York and is doing outreach there.

"This only expresses a few of the reasons why I’m nominating Apostle Napolina Richardson for the Leader Worth Following Awards."

Genora Jankee, Emerging Visionary Leader

Although the call to nominate emerging visionary leaders worth following, aged 15-25 was made over three months ago, unfortunately only one nomination was submitted. Undoubtedly St. Maarten has many emerging visionary leaders, but the one who stands out today is nineteen year old Genora Jankee. I invite you to meet Genora Jankee and learn more about her.

"My name is Genora Jankee. I was born on May 7, 1999 and I am currently a natural science student in the CAPE (Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations) program at St. Maarten Academy (Academic Campus).
"Coming from a single parent household, early I  learnt the importance of independence. In third form I developed a thirst for being involved actively in my school and community.
"I joined the St.Maarten Promoting Young Ambassadors foundation, where our main objective is to promote youth socially on the island. It was my role played within this organisation that led to the exodus of embracing my identity as an extrovert.
"Being a part of the SYMPA foundation I joined the kids place radio program. I later joined the Hyacinth Richardson debate team in 2015 and volunteered my free time at the MAC primary school assisting children.
"I’m a former member of the HYPE agenda, the School’s Student Government Association and  was Cum Laude of my 2016 graduating class.
"In 2017 I was a presenter at the Governor’s Symposium and a  nominee for the Young Queen of Leadership Award.
"I would describe myself as optimistic and high-spirited. My special interests are art and science. My love for visual arts and the love I have for science helped me to decide at an early age that my future career had to be directed in a path that included both [disciplines]. My plan is to return to St. Maarten after tertiary education and help develop my country."
