The US Navy Meets the Royal Air Force!

Florence Ramdin Hammond is one of the most inspirational persons anyone can hope to meet. She leads by example and her hard work and determination have taken her from her native country to the United States Navy and to England where she now resides.

Florence was born in Georgetown, Guyana. Her mom is Rita Ramdin and her dad is Samuel Albert Ramdeen. Florence has three sisters and a brother and they are Chrystal, Catherine, Andrea, and Samuel. Florence attended Houston Primary School where she took her Common Entrance exams. She then went to Alleyne’s High School in Regent’s Street and because she did so well she was accepted at St. Stanislaus College to pursue further studies. Florence liked Social Studies and handicraft and liberal arts.  

But it was not all about studies. Florence spent some time visiting her grandparents in Vergenoegen Stelling Road. She says, ‘I totally enjoyed it. It was nice to be with my grandparents and the beach was also beautiful.’ In 1989 Florence’s parents made a decision that would change her life. They moved from Guyana to the United States. Florence found New York to be an exciting city. She worked in a number of jobs before she was employed to manage a store on Fifth Avenue.
