Define Your Destiny – loveLife Generations 2011

Well what a year it has been-

Every time I have tried to list everything we have done this year, I always miss things out ! Some time in the beginning of the year we were fortunate enough to take part in Usher’s New Look Foundation workshop where the man himself graced us with his presence! And some time near the end of the year we were selling our all natural ‘hand made with love’ products with the Generation that have branded themselves as ‘Double L G’

I am going to attempt to highlight some of our achievements of 2011 but before I do, A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who has been involved, inspired, motivated and supported us. Keep flying high.

Ushers New Look Foundation – February and July 
After having taken part in a workshop run by young people from the Foundation; being graced with Usher’s presence and been given tickets to see Usher in concert a few of the loveLife Generation were given the oppotunity to attend a youth conference in Atlanta. They mingled, showcased talent and shared their experiences. On return the young loveLife Generation members trained and delivered the New Look Foundation’s workshop with young people in Newham. 
Take Back The Future 2011
We run this programme very successfully over 2011in partnership with NAADV. The young people involved were enthused and each cohort produced used their creativity and made a short film ‘Hidden Heroes’; a music track and spoken word pieces. 

Arianne De Rothschild Fellowship August 2011
I spent 2 weeks in the summer in Cambridge learning all about Social Entrepreneurship to ensure that loveLife Generation has a sustainable  future…

Swedish exchange – August 2011
 We had a whirlwind when young people from Sweden came over on the R.E.S.P.E.C.T exchange funded by  the British Council’s Youth In Action.
We ran workshops on gender equality, put on cultural shows for each other and made great memories.
