Da'Ville steams up Young Professionals' gathering


Da’Ville was his usual dynamic self at the recently held Young Professionals Network of Jamaica (YPNJ) get together at New Kingston’s Pegasus Hotel. The Fashozy Records artist said, "‘I decided to get involved because I am a young professional myself. I wanted to represent for the young musicians out there because music is a profession for me."

Delighting all in attendance with his songs, Da’Ville performed a moving set that included his hits, "Always on My Mind," "Here We Stand" and the motivating, "Give Thanks for What You’ve Got."

The network comprises vibrant Jamaican youth aged 18 – 45 who are not only based in Jamaica, but also living in many countries across the globe including: the UK, US, Canada, Germany and Japan.

With a membership of diverse professionals who are experts in areas such as medicine, law, information technology, the arts, business, engineering and education, YPNJ aims at reducing the numbers of educated Jamaicans who migrate; encouraging those educated abroad to return home. YPNJ wants to realize a coming together of its members in a concerted effort to make tangible contributions to the development and improvement of the country.

Networking in this manner has proven invaluable to Da’Ville who has been able to make acquaintances with many professionals. His advice to aspiring professionals, particularly those interested in the music industry, is to be tactful and, "Always have a professional attitude because you will be judged by how you approach things".

The brainchild of Yaneek Page, Managing Director of a legal funding company, the YPNJ is a non-profit, non-partisan NGO that has been incorporated since March 2008.
