Florence Allan

2016 William A. Dart Memorial
University Scholar

University of Bristol, UK
Class of 2019
Politics, Philosophy and Economics

Florence is studying politics, philosophy and economics (PPE) at the University of Bristol after graduating from Cayman Prep and High School as a top student in her class. The expansiveness of Florence’s degree allows her to explore many career options; and one option she is interested in is exploring sustainable development projects in developing countries and emerging markets.

Continuing her outstanding academic achievements, Florence received three "Firsts" and four "High 2:1" in her first year at university, achieved the Dean’s Commendation for Exceptional Performance, and is part of the select group of highest performing students at the University of Exeter — where she started her tertiary education.

Outside her studies, Florence is a dedicated and leading member of the Cayman Islands National Sailing Team where she served as Team Captain. She has represented the Cayman Islands internationally on some of the world's largest sporting stages, including the 2014 Youth Olympics Games, 2015 Central American & Caribbean Games and the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Last summer Florence worked with Dart’s HR department — and outside of office hours she coached at the Cayman Islands Sailing Club.
