Purpose – It was an educational afternoon full of comedy, inspirational career stories and insight into the business side of the Entertainment Industry. We had a great turnout. Students were able to listen to a diverse panel of seasoned and experienced industry executives who spoke on Education and Entrepreneurship in Entertainment.
Summary – The panel discussion focused on the importance of education as well as skills that compliment the school day. They also stated one could achieve their dreams through hard work, dedication and determination. They encouraged students to be confident, educate their selves and to get started early whether it’s pursing their dream or simply opening a banking account. Through Youth Empowerment Day we wanted to inspire our youth to dream bigger and go further.
