Attended the SHINE Youth Festival 2012 Media Conference yesterday with a group of bloggers :)
"SHINE Youth Festival is a platform for youths between the age of 15 and 35 to indulge in their passion. The initiative celebrates youths’ creativity and dynamism and encourages them to use SHINE Youth Festival as the stage to demonstrate their energy and grow their skills and talents."
Was late but they started even later. Phew.
The event started off with a dance performance by John and Denience Glee Studios (Pitch to SHINE finalist)!
Pitch to SHINE awardee!
Just fyi, Pitch to SHINE was launched early this year to identify and fund youth projects that promote worthy causes and make a difference in the community.
