YOUNG VI­SION

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - WORDS:

Flash­ing lasers and groovy tunes were pump­ing from lo­cal hip­ster hang­out Billy’s Cof­fee Shop for an in­for­ma­tion night with EnVizion.

EnVizion put on a spread of pizza and re­fresh­ments while in­form­ing the crowd about the En­trepreneurs of the Fu­ture pro­gram. As I was ad­mir­ing the in­cred­i­ble cul­tural paint­ings that adorned the walls, Maria Leonardi from EnVizion said she loved how the art­work changed from week to week, thanks to lo­cal young and emerg­ing con­tem­po­rary artists.

Sade BinGarape-Min­niecon has been an­nounced as the pro­gram’s Pace Set­ter. She has as­pi­ra­tions of be­com­ing a pos­i­tive leader to help indige­nous peo­ple to dis­cover their pas­sion and turn it into a ca­reer. Even though schoolies was about to kick off you could see par­tic­i­pants – whose var­ied in­ter­ests and pas­sions in­cluded fash­ion de­sign, so­cial me­dia, 3D print­ing, horse kit de­sign and gift ham­pers – were en­gaged.
