Dr. Ryan Robert Simpson

Aspirant Member of Parliament

My life has been driven by an unrelenting desire to look beyond my own immediate and personal aspirations and to give my myself to something larger and grander. It is this desire that has inspired me to devote over 20 years of my life to the occupation of a Minister of Religion. And it is this same desire that propels me to avail myself to the cause of national building in the service of my fellow citizens through representational politics.  It is my aim to be a conduit of hope and justice, an agent of change, and to embrace and fulfill my destiny to God and to my generation.
