The first time you hear someone referred to as ‘Doctor’, what comes to mind? When further details reveal that the person speaks fluent Spanish and has been trained in Cuba, what image is firmly cemented in your mind?
Dr Michael Andrew Knight breaks any preconceived notion you may have. Firstly, he holds a doctorate in Sport and Physical Education from the Universidad de las Ciecnias de la Cultura Fisica y el Deporte (loosely translated, the University of the Sciences of Physical Culture and Sport) —a lengthy name for a well-renowned university in Havana.
He is one of a handful of Caribbean nationals who has attained such a high academic standing from a Cuban university, and remarkably, he is only thirty-four.
