Introducing our new series ‘Staff Spotlight’
We are pleased to introduce Malik Richards, the Department’s bursary student who has just graduated with his Bachelors Degree in Geography from Saint Mary’s University!
A word from Malik:
‘After graduation from Warwick Academy, I decided to pursue geography as my university degree, because I always enjoyed the subject and how it can be related to so many other disciplines. I quickly took a liking to the human side of geography and urban development in particular. Shortly after the end of my first year in university, I heard about the Government Bursary for the Department of Planning and I was immediately interested. Fortunately I was awarded the bursary and the following summer I began working with the Department of Planning as a summer student. My work as a summer student taught me a lot, not only about the planning profession but also about Bermuda and how our island has developed. Now, after graduation from university in May 2020 I have returned to work for the Department full time and I look forward to continuing to grow and develop my skills as a young professional’.
