Mr. Michael Myles gave remarks on the newly launched scheme and its benefits followed by the Minister, Mr. Rolston Anglin.

Mr. Dale Ramoon, representative of the George Town Sports Club also spoke on his involvement with previous and future programmes.

The event continued with the official launching of the programme by Ms. Ebanks. She spoke of her passion for children and her belief in each child.

“I remember there was a bridal shop and a flower shop by Hurley’s which is gone now and they were run by two amazing women who would allow me to come there every day after school and work in their shops, not for any type of money or any of that it was just somewhere safe to go.

“I would like to provide to these young people a safe haven, somewhere that they can go to express themselves.

“I fell in love with fashion because of that bridal shop and so through Stardom Advanced Programme, I would love for it to expose the world to these young people.”
