Sanneta Myrie grew up in the rural parishes of her homeland, Jamaica. Now a fully qualified medical doctor, she is committed to helping others, and is passionate about the work she does, with aspirations of joining “Doctors without Borders’, an organisation providing medical care to the most marginalised worldwide.
Aside from her duties, the 24-year-old doctor loves the Jamaican lifestyle; embracing all facets of its culture, from the iconic reggae music to the fresh fish cuisine found in abundance. In her spare time she enjoys long distance and cross country running, she loves to dance, and she volunteers as a counsellor for the University of the West Indies.
