At their heart-warming presentation to Elle, Tatiana Britt, the team Captain, as well as Miss Youth Matter Teen 2011, made a brief speech, representing all of the young ladies of Just Dyvine, where she said to Elle the following:
“It has been nothing but a pleasure to work with Elle. When Youth Matter Incorporated reached out to you, to assist with its after-school dance program, Just Dyvine, you said yes without a second thought, and for that, Youth Matter, Incorporated and I are grateful. I knew the ladies of Just Dyvine would get along just fine with Elle, because the first time I saw her, she was decked out in a hot pink outfit. She has such a genuine and hard-working character. It was wonderful getting to know Elle not only as a program director, but as a true friend. Elle has taught the ladies of Just Dyvine how to work together as a team, how to cope with day-to-day struggles, and how to be a loyal friend. It’s sad to know that she will not be helping us out anymore, but I am sure I will see her at all of our events, cheering for us in the crowd. Elle, thanks for everything you have done for us. Youth Matter Incorporated is truly grateful.”

They also presented Elle with a beautiful necklace, in nothing less than a hot pink gift bag – true to the Just Dyvine style.
The entire Youth Matter Inc. organization wishes Elle the very best in her future endeavors and we say THANKS for all that you have done in getting the Just Dyvine program off the ground.
