Both SITS President Lydia Rogers and SISLT President Brenda Knox introduced the presenters after President Lydia opened with an enlightening quote by Audrey Hepburn- it stated how to be attractive by helping others–“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
