Kind, caring, dedicated, and determined are words that are used to describe people, however, does that individual live up to it? Well the princess of Mr Kelvin Roches and Ms Marjorie Forbes is definitely a living example of those words. On the 10th of December 1997, the Lord blessed the Roches family with Tysha Toni Roches. Tysha was a very vibrant character from a young age. Everyone saw the potential in her. Tysha attended Bethany Baptist Preschool. Thereafter, she attended a well-known primary school in Belize City, Holy Redeemer Primary School. There again, Tysha displayed her enthusiasm. Teachers recognized Tysha’s abilities, and they never limited her. She was a key member of the school’s football team. Upon graduating, the teachers and principal saw the need to award Tysha Roches with student of the year for the graduating class of 2010-2011. It was another milestone for Tysha as she was moving to secondary education. She was accepted at Saint Catherine’s Academy, one of Belize’s prestigious all girls institution. Tysha Roches started her journey in August of 2011 and, as expected, was successful. Tysha began studying business at Saint Catherine’s Academy (SCA); however, still had a passion for computer technology. She participated in various video competitions. For instance in 2013, Tysha won a video competition in which she had to portray the theme “Belize in you, Belize in me, Land of the free” and her patriotism for my country, Belize. Then, in 2014 Tysha entered a Coastal Zone Video Competition and won the view’s choice award. With her found love for sports, she was also a member of SCA’s female football and basketball teams who won the championship in 2015. On the 18th of May 2015, Tysha won CANTO’s 9th Annual WTISD – Video Competition which gave her the recognition she needed. Tysha Roches is a very motivated and goal driven young lady. Tysha Roches will be graduating from SCA on the 30th of May 2015. Thereafter, she will be pursuing her tertiary education at Saint John’s Junior College in Computer Information System (CIS). Tysha Toni Roches is fully supported by family and friends! Tysha takes the time each and every day to savor the moment for all her accomplishments and blessings. There are no limits set for the ambitious Tysha Toni Roches.

My team’s/swimclub’s name was Neptunes. Later on I became interested in photography and decided to stop with swimming. On my 15th birthday I got a canon camera as a present. I attended some photography lessons from professional photographers and now I’m preparing myself to be one as well.
