An outgoing, talkative and mischievous child, Charmaine often engaged in debates with her parents and other members of the family. It was quite obvious to Granville and Norma that Charmaine would be in the limelight either as a politician or some other type of public figure. At the age of seven her path was identified, when after some considerable thought Charmaine exclaimed that she wanted to become a lawyer. Her parents asked her why? Charmaine responded, “[because] I am intelligent and I am a genius!” Her parents said spell intelligent and genius. Charmaine obliged (correctly) and the rest as they say is history.
