Tuesday, 18th January 2022, is a historic day for our small nation state. Dr Roberta Metsola, politician, mother, and St Joseph School Sliema past pupil has been elected President of the European Parliament in a landslide victory.
“I am a woman from a small island in the middle of Europe’s southern sea. I know what it is like to be the underdog, to be pigeonholed. But I also know how important this is for people beyond this chamber. I know what this means for every girl watching today; for everyone who dares and who ever dared to dream.”
Thank you Roberta, for believing and achieving. For living our school motto. For being a beacon of hope. For giving women a voice.
May your integrity, values, passion and drive inspire other women leaders.
God bless you and your work.
