UMHS students got together for yet another UMHS’ Got Talent event to have fun, showcase student talent and celebrate the student body’s cultural diversity, all to raise money for the St. Christopher Children’s Home’s art program on November 8, 2018. STEPS and AMWA organized the event. UMHS’ Got Talent shows have been performed over the past few years on the St. Kitts campus.

The UMHS Endeavour spoke to several students from UMHS, one of the leading Caribbean medical schools, about participating, thoughts on their individual performances and the meaning behind them from a cultural perspective. From Bhangra/fusion dance to the Medstreet Boys, we spoke to students about taking a break from studies to have an awesome time while raising funds for such a worthy cause. Read Deser'e Gitulli's post in the Endeavour to learn about all the fun for a great cause.
