Diandra Whittaker

2017 High School Scholar
St. Ignatius Catholic School

Diandra is a well-rounded student who excels in the classroom, has made her mark in sports and believes strongly in the value of community service. These accomplishments have seen her recognised numerous times as the Student of the Month, and three years in a row as Student of the Year at St. Ignatius Catholic School.

Diandra is active in her school’s extracurricular activities: she plays multiple sports including football and touch rugby; was elected Patrol Leader for her school’s Girl Guides group by her peers; and is a member of her school’s Builders, Science, and Key clubs. She put her STEM skills into action in the 2017 Mi Academy Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture Academy run by the prestigious Webb Institute from Long Island, New York.

Diandra hopes to become a neurologist and wants to be the first Caymanian physician to focus on treating chronic brain-related illnesses in children and adolescents.
