A Taste of Par­adise in the UK

The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - FRONT PAGE -

The stu­dent lounge at BPP Univer­sity Busi­ness Cam­pus, St. Mary’s Axe, Lon­don came alive last Fri­day with a spec­ta­cle of Fash­ion, Dance, Food, Drink and a merger of a di­verse range of cul­tures and net­work­ing called “St. Lu­cia: A Taste of Par­adise.”

Last year June, a num­ber of Saint Lu­cian stu­dents were awarded schol­ar­ships to study Busi­ness and Law in Lon­don un­der the over­sight of Shelly Noon, Dr. Jac­que­line Bird and Rise St. Lu­cia.

Due to the num­ber of St. Lu­cians cur­rently at­tend­ing BPP and the lit­tle knowl­edge the other stu­dents from the wider re­gion have of St. Lu­cia, St. Lu­cian stu­dents felt the need to start the BPP St. Lu­cian So­ci­ety. The aim of the so­ci­ety is to as­sist all St. Lu­cians cur­rently at the Univer­sity to be­come am­bas­sadors for St Lu­cia, as­sist with academics, hous­ing and sup­port for other St. Lu­cians who are will­ing to study in Lon­don in the fu­ture. The ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers of the so­ci­ety worked tire­lessly to put to­gether what turned out to be the first of many suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing events. The event gave per­sons a pre­lude to what Saint Lu­cia has to of­fer from its tra­di­tional cul­ture, food, tourist at­trac­tions and his­tory through an ex­cit­ing video that was shown af­ter which the au­di­ence asked ques­tions and won tasty choco­lates from Ho­tel Chocolat.

The crowd en­joyed the lovely cui­sine from Sa Bonne Restau­rant which is owned by St. Lu­cian Samson An­toine.

The event fea­tured tra­di­tional Saint Lu­cian wear from Es­can­dale Fash­ion House by Jac­que­line N Fran­cis, Par­adise Prints by Fiona Comp­ton and La Rayan Folk dancers from Anse La Raye now based in the UK.

A Taste of Par­adise was put on by the BPP Saint Lu­cia So­ci­ety.
