“A core part of DFI's mission is to encourage generational learning and we believe that it's

never too early to invest in the next generation, which we are already doing with your

Young Original Unstoppable Program for girls aged 10-12 on December 2nd. So we are

extremely excited to welcome senior students from Bermuda College and High Schools

across Bermuda to share in the amazing experience of DFI,” said Chair, Leah Dean.
