‘Work for the betterment of our country’ – Guyana-born movie star Letitia Wright encouraged Members of Parliament

Letitia Wright visited the National Assembly on Monday and encouraged Parliamentarians to strive towards peace and love as they continued working for the betterment of Guyana.

“I just want to thank everyone that has invited me to return home and just encourage you all, I don’t know the ins and outs of politics, I just care more about children and the betterment of young people.

“But as you all come together to make decisions for the country, I encourage both sides, both parties; I encourage peace, I encourage love. I am of peace, I am of love and I’m just proud of you both and everybody that’s working together for the betterment and empowerment of our country,” the 29-year-old Guyanese-British movie star said in her brief speech.

Wright, who 20 ago left her home at Goed Intent, West Bank Demerara, for the United Kingdom to pursue a dream she hoped would one day be a reality, is now a role model for many young Guyanese.

She was extended an invitation by the President of Guyana Dr. Irfaan Ali back in November 2022, to visit her homeland.

Wright landed Friday night when she received a hearty welcome from the First Lady of Guyana, Mrs. Arya Ali, the Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Oneidge Walrond and her relatives.

The Black Panther star arrived in Guyana on Friday last and has already conducted a number of activities. She is slated to meet with President Dr. Irfaan Ali later.
