ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Sixty young women, ages 12 to 18, were all charmed, dazzled and equipped with invaluable life lessons, at the inaugural Charm Academy, ‘Dreams to Vision’ Conference on June 16, 2018.

The one-day conference was the brainchild of the visionary, Charm Academy Founder, Mrs Karia J. Christopher.

Self-Sustainable

The Executive Officer and academy founder, in a press release dated, June 18, 2018, said, “It is my desire to give our young people in the Virgin Islands the necessary tools to become successful leaders and self-sustainable.”

According to Ms Christopher, “Charm Academy has been my dream for a very long time and being able to host this inaugural conference has only motivated me even more.”

Participants at the one day ‘Dreams’ conference—organised by Charm Academy—have since described the conference as enlightening, exciting, stimulating, eye-opener, empowering, motivational and insightful.

Mrs Christopher stated that the conference—which focused training on respectability, posture, manners, grooming, confidence, self-image, etiquette, entrepreneurship, and financial management—was a resounding success and that she looks forward to organising a similar confab in future.

Partnerships

The organiser said, the event was made possible through partnerships with a number of the Virgin Islands’ (VI) most influential and inspiring professionals.

Also supporting the activity were official sponsors, Hon. Myron V. Walwyn (AL), Advertise It BVI, Nagico Insurances, Road Town Wholesale Trading Ltd., Caribbean Cellars, and VI Motors British Virgin Islands.  Contributors included, Eventus Limited, Forge International, Hazeem’s Beauty Supply, John F. Black Photography, Karen Cupid, Marina Inn Restaurant and Nashema Smith-McKenzie.
