“We can finally announce what we prepared for the past months. It was a big challenge for us to prepare during the lockdown period. We faced many struggles, because of the pandemic crisis but we didn’t let the negative things to make us down, instead, we doubled our efforts and helped each other,” she stated.
She added: “I think our passion and love for our dream made us accomplish this project. We will give our best for Baby Blue to move forward towards our dream.”
