A Proud Day - NiNa Graduation

The journey is never ending. There's always gonna be growth, improvement, adversity; you just gotta take it all in and do what's right, continue to grow, continue to live in the moment. Antonio Brown

Today is the graduation for the NiNa Young Entrepreneurship  an  Leadership Programme.

NiNa is a leadership and entrepreneurship programme developed for young women to embody an entrepreneurial mindset. Bishops and Trinity East Sixth Form School has been a partner for a very long time, they continue to churn out excellence on an annual basis



I am especially happy and proud to see this programme continue despite my traversing and being present to facilitate this. Mrs Patricia Toby has been a God send, she has been committed to NiNa. Avinash, a teacher at the school has been supportive from the first day I introduced the idea to him. I have so much respect and gratitude for them both, they didn't know me but wanted to join up and assist.

2019 is around the corner I see the programme evolving,who better to have in my corner but these two? When I came up this idea, I remember having an advisory committee, they have all gone their separate ways, I give thanks for their support at the beginning, every one who contributed, teaching me all about how to let go, how to work as a team, how to take responsibility for my actions

Here we are going into our 9th year and I am so grateful for all the lessons, I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the future


Peace
