Having recently graduated from the UWI at St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago, Belizean born Dr. Einstein Bodden was invited by San Pedro High School to be their guest speaker at the opening of the school’s Career Week. Dr. Bodden addressed the student body on Monday, February 3, 2014, during morning assembly.
What makes Dr. Bodden’s case so special is that he has overcome a disability that has him bound to a wheelchair. Through very hard work, dedication and surpassing many obstacles, he and his family were able to send him to school in Belize and then through medical school abroad.

Dr. Bodden has already come back home to Belize to practice medicine, but yesterday morning he addressed the students of San Pedro High School to share his incredible story and challenges that he encountered in his pursuit of his medical degree. He addressed the entire school during morning assembly but was also able to chat more privately as he visited a few classrooms throughout the day. Needless to say, the students were amazed at his story and were very inspired by his journey and dedication.
