The New Self-Help Foundation has
issued its first Trade Skills Apprenticeship grant to local singer, songwriter
and Production Engineer, Cameron Bodden, also known as Jiggz Jay.
The teenager, who is described as multitalented
by those who know him, was selected as the first recipient of the $500 grant
based on his overall skill and passion for improvement.
He has performed at two of the
Foundation’s Talent Exposition of the Arts and has exhibited major improvement
each time he has appeared, according to organiser of the event and founder and
chief executive officer of the Self-Help Foundation, JC Connor.
“The Foundation is encouraged by
this young man’s desire. We aim to help young people realize that they can act on
goals, make a difference and achieve their full potential if they are willing
to persevere and participate in their own development,” said Mr. Connor.
