    Bravo for these 2 gentlemen….. special kudos for Vera… I know him personally from early childhood…. such examples should our youths follow today…

    Vera is from a very small village in Corozal Dist… grew up in a very poor and humble family… through much sacrifice completed his studies at Escuela Mexico… was one of the first students to pass CXCs in Science back then in the early 90′s…. completed his sixth form studies through working scholarships…..after so many obstacles he became Belize’s first Ballistics Expert…now he is a promising forensic analyst…. WHO SAYS POVERTY ONLY BREEDS CRIMINALS…???? WAKE UP POOR PEOPLE… STOP USING POVERTY AS AN EXCUSE TO LAZYNES, MEDIOCRITY AND CRIME!!!
