Speaker Series: Paula Madison

Paula Madison visited our Grade 6 to 10 students and shared with us her life story and how she achieved success by being different. Paula is the Chairman and CEO of Madison Media Management LLC and 88 Madison Media Works Inc, as well as having previously worked for NBC Universal and GE. She was named one of the "75 Most Powerful African Americans in Corporate America" by Black Enterprise Magazine in 2005, among many other accomplishments and awards.

One remarkable experience she shared was her documentary, Finding Samuel Lowe. It is a touching story of her search for her Chinese grandfather's descendants in China and was an incredible journey that crossed borders, languages, and cultures.

As an international school with a diverse community, we celebrate our differences, making Paula's visit particularly meaningful. Her dual citizenship of the United States and Jamaica, along with her compelling story of reconnecting with her Chinese heritage, resonated with our students who come from multicultural backgrounds or have experienced living in various countries.

Paula's ability to captivate her audience left everyone amazed and inspired. In her parting message, she emphasized how being different can be an advantage and encouraged our students to open their minds, be attentive listeners, and strive to become global citizens.
