This month, OECS YES In Action caught up with Christal K Oliver, a 29 year old Creative from St. Vincent and the Grenadines embracing the improvements to e-commerce and digital connectivity propelled by the COVID-19 pandemic and encouraging other creatives to find their silver lining despite current challenges.
Oliver introduces herself:
“As a fashion designer and radio personality, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to pursue my main passions: designing handbags and other fashion items, sewing, and sharing my views on matters that affect the youth and other vulnerable sectors in the hope of change.
I am also passionate about youth entrepreneurship, it means a lot to me as I see it as an effective means of self-expression, sustainability, independence, adventure, personal development and breaking down barriers and stigmas that (we are now closer to saying) once existed.
In addition to these interests, I am a lover of steel pan music. I am integrally involved, from the performing level all the way to the organizing and structural level”.
