Sub Lieutenant Beache a member of the Royal St.Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force for the past 10 years said he is grateful to God, the Government of St.Vincent and the Grenadines, the Government of Brazil, and the Organization of American States (OAS) for providing him with a scholarship to pursue his studies.
Beache said his academic pursuit in Brazil was a challenging one because all of his courses were done in the Portuguese language, but he succeeded in making friends who had done the courses before and were able to guide him.
He also gathered information on subject areas posted online by other universities and by using an App that helped people to learn the Portuguese language.
He said his experience has helped him to become more independent as well as proactive.
Charles on the other hand said his greatest challenge was returning to the classroom and learning the Chinese language.
