YOUTHFEST is a career guidance day that aims to educate and inform the youth of all choices available to them.
I was asked by De Monique to participate and in the Youthfest and speak about the modelling industry.
Myself and two of my coaches Larnelle and Lee took to the stage speaking about the modelling industry and motivating and inspiring the youth to believe in themselves, to strive above their circumstances and reach their goals. They were very excited and enthused by our speeches.
Next I brought out some of our student and professional models in Nautical inspired colours and styles to do a demonstration. (The crowd went wild) especially for Irenes Male Models.
Amongst the line up of speakers for the day included Mr Ori (Director of Co-operative Education) Professor Siyakwazi (Head of education department at DUT) Professor Dasarath Chetty (Sociology) just to mention a few.
The day ended with a concert, amongst the line up featuring De Monique (along with ETV’S ‘Step Up or Step Out FAME’ finalists )
I would like to thank De Monique for giving us this opportunity to make a positive difference to the YOUTH..... Irene
