Deltrude Hylton was born and raised in Belize City, and is now raising her four children here. She was educated at Ebenezer Primary and later earned her diploma at St. John’s Extension. She is now working to attain an Associate’s Degree in Primary Education.
Deltrude has worked as a trained paramedic at the Belize Emergency Response Team (BERT) for over sixteen years and has seen more than her share of the tragic results of violence which plagues the streets of the city. She is determined to play a critical role in bringing positive changes into the community, and feels that it is a chronic neglect and abandonment of our residents which is contributing to the frustration, hopelessness and violence in the city’s poorest areas.
She is a Guider for the Belize Girl Guides and has volunteered at Helpage for years while also assisting residents as a dedicated Justice of the Peace. She is a proud member of the PUP Caribbean Shores Executive Committee and is determined to be an instrumental part of the team which will bring new life to the city.
