Nadja Willis Progressive Candidate for Christ Church South is a Barbadian with the community in her heart. She received her secondary school education at the Christ Church Foundation School and later attended University at the Sorbonne in Paris, France.
Nadja sought to spread her wings beyond Barbados, and therefore traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, fully embracing and seeking to understand the cultures and religions of different people. It was while in Europe, engaged in the world of investment banking, that she shifted her interests to a far more holistic approach to living. Nadja is now a nutritionist and a naturopath by profession and serves as a director of the Mekaba Centre for Holistic Health and Wellbeing. She is committed on a weekly basis to preparing food and providing meals for the homeless and those in need. Nadja is an advocate of sustainable living which includes the use of renewable energies; recycling; and growing our own food for consumption.
Most recently she participated in the Carifesta celebrations by joining with artists and painting murals. When asked about her interest in politics, she said that she knew that she had a choice between taking action to bring fundamental change to her country or to do nothing. She, therefore, decided to join the United Progressive Party as their policies were very much consistent with the direction in which she wanted to see her country go. Nadja is not one to sit on the sidelines and be a mere observer of life. She is one for action. She will bring this same disposition to her representation for the people of Christ Church South and to the country of Barbados in general.
