Introduction and Ambitions

Takoma Carty is a Student pursuing her  BSc (Hons) in  Forensic Biology at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, Lancashire.  Upon successful completion of her undergraduate degree, she hopes to pursue a MSc (Hons) in DNA Fingerprinting at UCLAN and eventually return home to Anguilla and construct or aid in the construction of a functional Forensic Unit, a facility that she considers to be of urgent need in Anguilla.

In her own words

I am a resident of the beautiful village of South Hill, the daughter of Jane D. Carty and the proud mother of Tiandra L. Carty. I love Anguilla and I am doing my best to represent my country and my family at UCLAN. I think of myself as a hard-working, ambitious and kind hearted person who can make a difference in peoples lives.

Through going to University I hope to show other young ladies in Anguilla that even if you have a baby at a young age you can still accomplish what you want in life.

In my second and third years at UCLAN I hope to work in the university's laboratory to improve my laboratory skills and improve my chances of employability after graduation. I also hope to graduate with a first class degree in October/November 2008.
