Hon. Alando Nathaniel Terrelonge

State Minister in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Government of Jamaica

Meet our Visionary Speaker, The Honourable Alando Nathaniel Terrelonge who was born in the small community of Grants Pen, St Andrew, Jamaica.

A graduate of Campion College, Mr. Terrelonge pursued his legal studies at the University of the West Indies, where he attained his Law Degree. He was later admitted to the Jamaican Bar after successfully completing his studies at the Norman Manley Law School, where he was the recipient of several awards.

In 2008, he was awarded the Chevening Scholarship by the British Council, to pursue a Master’s degree at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, where he studied courses related to International Relations; International Criminal Law; and International Human Rights. Following his master’s programme, he moved to Madrid, Spain, where he worked on matters related to the promotion of Democracy and International Peace & Security with a Think Tank called FRIDE.

His love for Jamaica saw him returning in 2010, where he decided to let his voice be heard on social issues. He soon became a Guest Columnist for both the Gleaner and the Observer, writing about politics, law and social justice. In 2011, he became an associate tutor at the Norman Manley Law School where he tutored Trial Advocacy for several years.

His commitment to nation building later pivoted him into the new role of politics. Following his historic win in the Jamaica General Elections of February 2016, he became the first member of the Jamaica Labour Party to win a seat in the Municipality of Portmore in 36 years. He now represents the constituency of East Central St. Catherine and views his role as Member of Parliament as a means to continue to make a positive impact in the lives of his constituents and play his part in building a better and more prosperous Jamaica.

In February 2019 he was appointed by the Honourable Prime Minister to serve as the Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, with direct portfolio responsibility for Youth and Information. He previously served as Minister of State in the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports. He is a champion of education, youth empowerment, sports and community development and constantly reminds the youth of Jamaica that education is the best gift they can give themselves.
