ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Mr. Craig A. Lake, President of Follow The Movement (FTM) and key sponsor Rotary Club of Road Town are very upbeat about the opportunity that will soon be afforded young women of the Fourth and Fifth Forms of Secondary Schools across the Territory as the ‘I am a Lady’ workshop programme is set to get going.

The programme will be done in the form of a seminar to be held on October 16, 2014 at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College’s (HLSCC) Eileene Parsons Auditorium.

However the launch took place yesterday September 30, 2014 at Maria’s By the Sea where most of the persons selected to be an inspiration to the young women met in one room for a press briefing and seminar launch activity.

Very enthused about the expected outcome of the October 16, 2014 workshop Mr Lake told this news site that Follow the Movement has been very keen on utilizing local resources, persons who the young women of the Virgin Islands see on a daily basis and are looked upon as role models in some way or the other.

“There are persons right here that our young girls look at every day, they see them, they look at the way they dress, they way the speak, their commitment to their jobs and family and so we need to have these very people be motivators to help guide our young women in the path that leads to a positive contribution to society and more so to help them hold on the morals that constitute a good young woman,” said Mr Lake in speaking with Virgin Islands News Online.

Present at the press briefing was President of the Rotary Club of Road Town Mr Shan Mohamad who has shown his commitment toward the furtherance of the positive growth and development of youths in the society.

Mohamed is well supported by his members of the club and while he did not speak at the press conference Past District Governor Vance Lewis said that they are pleased to be partnering with FTM for the seminar.

Mr Lewis said that this year the District Governor Mr Paul Brown has charged all 84 clubs in district 2070 to inspire. “The focus on youths is not accidental. It is vitally necessary to bring focus on tomorrow’s leaders. Today we gather to launch and witness one way that we can inspire youths at least one gender at a time, while our young ladies build productive and healthy lifestyles,” said Mr Lewis.

He further said that progress made by young ladies of the VI will also serve to inspire other youths not only in the VI but through social and other media regionally and indeed globally.

“If I can borrow words of our Rotary international 2014-2015 President Gary Huang ‘Light Up Rotary’… well I urge you to light up the world through this seminar you become a beacon of hope for so many other young person’s whom you can inspire by taking the first step in engaging with positive elements in the community,” he added.

The focus areas of the seminar included Gender Equity to be done by Mrs. Karia J. Christopher, Social Media to be dealt with by Mr. Gordon French, Leadership by Miss BVI 2014 – 2015 Ms. Jaynene Jno Lewis, Anger Management by Pastor Melvin ‘Mitch’ Turnbull, Tattoo And Piercing by Mr. Julien Johnson and Don’t Write How You Speak by Mr. Kareem-Nelson Hull.

      Oh, I thought he meant running for politics, but there are some punctuation marks missing there so you have to read intuitively.

    Women should mentor young women's and girls. This is crazy, everybody power hungry, looking for recognition. They do not have the youth interest at heart.
