Barbados-based news website The Bajan Reporter carries a profile of Leicester graduate and Trinidadian TV presenter Verena Siblal, who has an MA in Mass Communication.

Verena grew up in Curepe in Northern Trinidad and has landed the plum job as a presenter on Trinidad’s music channel Synergy TV.

This has led to lots more work hosting concerts, presenting TV shows and interviewing Caribbean celebrities. Recently Verena has branched out into acting with appearances in music videos and a role in 3 Lines, the first ever Trinidadian horror film, directed by Mikkel Khan.

Alongside all this work, Verena found time to study for a BA in History at the University of the West Indies and an MA in Mass Communication at Leicester which she studied via distance learning.
