She was also in the national Top 10 in four of the subjects, notably Spanish, Physics, Biology, and the Electronic Document Preparation and Management. In addition, she achieved five Grade Ones at the CAPE level and is confident that she will repeat this achievement in five other CAPE subjects in 2020.

In addition to her other achievements, she is a member of Jamaica’s National Under-21 Hockey team.” I am honored that I have been accepted to Harvard and am excited to make use of the opportunity. I have not visited the campus but I’ve been on a virtual tour and have watched countless videos about life on campus.
“I would advise students to start early and allow themselves enough time to think outside the box, truly reflect and grow in the process; get professional help where possible (Versan is my top choice); be honest and don’t be afraid to be vulnerable. Be confident. At the end of the day, you’ll go where you’re meant to be”, said Seychelle, when we asked what advice she would give other students who are striving to succeed and attend an ivy league school. Doyley’s expected graduation date from Harvard is 2024.
