Creative Industries

Amoy Smith*
Entertainment and Events Management Program, Vocational Training Development Institute

The Advance Program allowed me to start tertiary education. It made me realize that I need to take opportunities once they arrive and make the best of it. Getting the scholarship makes me believe that anything is possible and that dreams do come through. Education means success, it means a better way of living or a better way of life. For years, I felt like I was in darkness because education means so much and I was unable to access tertiary education. Thank God for the Advance Program I am now shining through. The journey has been awesome! I am so blessed and grateful. Going to school daily makes me smile and so grateful.
