Often referred to as an underdeveloped parish plagued with youth unemployment, St Thomas can now anticipate a “positive wave of change” to emerge during the next few years, if social entrepreneur and native of the parish, Tishauna Mullings, founder of NexxStepp Lifelong Educational Services, achieves her goals.
