Congratulations to Guyanese-Born Businesswoman Gina Miller who has been named Britain’s Most influential Black Person.
In a story published by BBC News, Gina topped the 2018 Powerlist of 100 people, which recognizes those of African and African Caribbean heritage. The 52-year-old led the successful Brexit legal challenge which ruled parliament had to vote on whether Theresa May could trigger Article 50.
Those named were decided by an independent panel – including former High Court judge Dame Linda Dobbs and former Apprentice winner Tim Campbell. They rated nominees on their “ability to change lives and alter events”.
In 2016 Gina was hailed “Woman of the Century” after winning a BREXIT Lawsuit after three of the UK’s most senior judges agreed with Gina’s argument and determined that the government is legally required to pass an act of parliament before initiating Britain’s formal departure from the European Union. As a result of this accomplishment, opposer of BREXIT hailed Gina as the “Woman of the Century.”
Gina is the daughter of the former Attorney General of Guyana, Doodnauth Singh. To learn more about Gina’s personal story, check out her GGR Feature.
