Meet the Team

At BLESST, we're a passionate group of young individuals committed to creating positive change in the lives of youths from marginalized communities. We believe in the potential of every young person, regardless of their background, and we're dedicated to empowering them with valuable skills for the future. Our team shares a common vision of providing a safe and nurturing environment where these youths can freely express themselves, learn, and grow. Together, we're working tirelessly to challenge stereotypes and unlock the incredible potential that society might overlook. Join us on this journey of transformation and empowerment.
