Tanesha Mundle reports that Sherona Forrester, a member of the Jamaica senior women’s football team, Reggae Girls, is a 2016 Rhodes Scholar.

The Clarendon native was selected from an outstanding field of eight competitors. The announcement was made by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen at King’s House today.

“My mind went blank. The whole world stopped just for a second or so. Then I replayed it just to make sure that it was my name that was being called and then I just started smiling because I couldn’t believe it and I am still here in the surreal of it all,” said the University of the West Indies graduate.

Forrester will be pursuing an MPhil at Oxford University in England.
