Divas Girls Group - November 28th, 2019
On Thursday, November 28th, 2019, several young women in our Divas Media program performed their spoken word poems at the annual holiday celebration for the Canadian Women’s Foundation. The event was held at 100 Adelaide St. W, and about 35 to 40 people were in attendance. It was an honor to be invited to the celebration where FOCUS’ work was recognized. The event started off with: speeches from Paula Smith (the Board of Director) and Kristin Blakely (Chair of the Board). FOCUS young women were introduced by Kristin Blakely. The young women went up and introduced themselves, spoke about where they were from (FOCUS), and why they choose the poem to present. Although the young women were nervous during their performance, they pulled it off and did an amazing job! The celebration ended with a speech from Paulette Senior (The President and CEO). The young women and I had a great time and we enjoyed the celebration. Thank you to the Canadian Women’s Foundation for continued support.
