Shaquille Johnson: Flying Beyond Expectations

  • Jan 02, 2019

Eighteen-year-old Wolmer's Boys' School student Shaquille Johnson has impressed observers with how successfully he has run his company, Drone Repairs Jamaica.

Shaquille, who is serving as head boy in his last year at Wolmer's, started his company over a year and a half ago, providing repair services for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as drones.

His company has multiple divisions, including marketing, outreach and repairs. Currently, seven other persons, mainly high-school colleagues, are involved in the business, four as partners and three as employees.

Shaquille noted that operating the business has provided him with a host of difficult challenges.

"Every repair that we get, there is a different set of challenges that come about," he said.
