From a Country Boy to World Statesman – Ambassador Curtis Ward

A CaribNation TV Production

(21 Nov. 2018) — This short video biography captures some interesting paths I traveled from my early years in Treasure Beach, St. Elizabeth, a rural area of Jamaica, through Manchester High School in Mandeville, Jamaica. It’s a path which led me to Howard University, Washington DC/USA; and after 19 years of private practice of law in Washington DC, to a career which included service on the United Nations Security Council as Ambassador of Jamaica.

This interview was done spontaneously in the studio of CaribNation TV taking advantage of a gap in regularly scheduled interviews in which I was intended as the Host and interviewer and not the interviewee.  Larry Sindass the Producer/Director of CaribNation TV decided to use the opportunity to interview me instead.

I am pleased to share this synopsis of my history with the world. I hope you enjoy watching.
