Speakers make impact on netball teenagers
Girls were told to reach for the stars at a special event organised by a netball league.
About 70 youngsters attended the Digicel Bermuda Netball Association Junior League event at CedarBridge Academy in Prospect to hear motivational speakers Shacolbi Basden and Terri Doyle.
The event last month was organised in a joint effort with Digicel’s Girl Strong programme.
Karlandra Smith, a Digicel marketing executive, said the company supported events to encourage young people.
She added: “The BNBA has always had a strong connection to Bermuda’s community, going above and beyond to ensure the young girls of today become powerful women of tomorrow.
“We at Digicel couldn’t be more excited to partner with such an amazing organisation, for a phenomenal and necessary cause.”
Ms Smith said Girl Strong delivered “an awesome opening event with the girls sharing their dreams”.
“In the span of four hours, we saw the impact that our powerful speakers had on them.”
Kimale Evans, president of the Bermuda Netball Association, said the young athletes were told to “persevere despite your circumstances”.
Ms Evans added: “Everyone has been predestined with a purpose. If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”
