The young scholar’s father, Winston Bennett, passed away five years ago.
But she has received big support from teachers, friends, and relatives – including her mother Monefa Brown.
Bennett, in response to questions posed by The Beacon, also attributed her success to the sacrifices she has made and to her firm belief in God.
