2017 YCLA Finalist Alice Ramos

Alice Ramos, YCLA Finalist 2017

 Alice Ramos will find the 25th hour in the day when necessary to improve the lives of others through community service. One of her most proud positions in this regard was serving as President of Rotaract Blue Cayman Islands in 2015/16, after moving up the club ranks in a variety of capacities. During her year as president, she created the initiative “Put your best foot forward,” a program that provided new school shoes for children coming from families facing financial difficulties.

While there are too many of her charitable efforts to mention, some of her most prized moments include mentoring young Caymanians via The Cayman Finance Student Education & Work Experience Programme, raising money for Meals on Wheels, volunteering with Junior Achievement (and now serving on the board). Alice is always ready and willing to put in the work, even when there is no recognition for her personally.

In her professional life, she started as an intern at DMS in 2004 and has worked her way up to a Manager Position in Operations and Redemptions at Saxon Pensions. Along this journey, she has received numerous awards and accolades. She has been an active leader of the Saxon Investment Club, a programme that teaches young people about the markets and educates young people about the value of saving and investing from an early stage.

When she isn’t volunteering or working, she enjoys keeping fit, and is often looking for the next half-marathon to challenge her physically and mentally.

Core Message to Youth

“Believe in yourself, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Your age doesn’t matter. Your past doesn’t matter. And the amount of times you’ve picked yourself up and started over again,  definitely doesn’t matter. You can achieve anything! Turn the page and begin a new script; don’t let your first chapter determine the rest of your life.”
