SLEEK AMBASSADOR LAUNCH ADDRESS
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Media here present
All protocols observed….
Good morning and welcome to the launch of the SLEEK AMBASSADOR PROJECT, an initiative from LIPP Global.
LIPP is an acronym for Ladies in Prestige and Purpose. LIPP is a movement that is aimed at igniting a spirit of self-help among Ghanaians with an initial focus on the Young Ghanaian.
Myself and some friends have come to realize that the average Ghanaian youth hardly steps up to be counted predominantly because of our culture and upbringing. Growing up you dare not speak your mind because age was associated with wisdom so who are you to voice out your dream much more have the confidence to begin to leave your dream
We are a patient people who wait to be discovered, like I was discovered, but of course there are just that many platforms to discover everybody.
As young female adults we interact with a lot of young persons who wished they had been a bit more proactive in taking that step of faith to living their dream but didn’t predominantly because they could not challenge the status quo.
LIPP is an initiative to help young adult females challenge the Status Quo and become who they want to be
LIPP aims to generate a groundswell of liberated young ladies who will be at the forefront of the campaign to ignite the passions of self-help among young Ghanaian females irrespective of their circumstances in life.
The initiative is to get young female adults to identify their calling in life early and take concrete steps to start the journey early in life so they can rise to their full potential.
The Sleek Ambassador Project is one of the initiatives by LIPP to give legs to the initiative on the ground in addition to serving as a pivot for PR and Marketing Communications activities of sponsor’s brands in Ghana.
The main objective of the SLEEK AMBASSADOR is to facilitate an enabling environment for young female adults to ignite their passions in life by exposing them to the various occupational/career opportunities available and also inculcating in them the practice of combining commercial activities with their academic pursuits to start them on their journey in life.
The SLEEK AMBASSADOR project is aimed at unveiling two unique ambassadors, a “face” that will be representing LIPP and that will champion the aspirations of the LIPP initiative and also get to live their dream of an international modeling career.
A “ hand” that will be making up the “face” and getting exposure for the work done and training from the Title Sponsors SLEEK Cosmetics plus support to rise to the top of their career
