Miss Solomon Islands 2012 Stephanie Prince will be joining forces with the Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI).

Stephanie Prince, Miss Solomon Islands 2012 will be joining forces with the Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI) until the end of March.


The internship for the 22-year old comes as the Chamber is busy preparing for its new annual gala event, the national Business Excellence Awards, on March 23.

Prince brings a national profile and a significant edge in the business sector with her.

She is being seconded from her family company BP Investment limited where she works full time in sales and marketing.

“We are pleased to welcome Ms. Prince on board and look forward to the skills and energy she will add to the work of ensuring the awards gala is a success,” says SICCI CEO Jerry Tengemoana.

Prince joins other SICCI interns Stevenson Konainao and Calisto Oiofa under the joint SPC ‘Youth at work’ program.

“The chamber internship program aims at linking up with our future leaders and ensuring they are familiar with the ‘engine room’ industries driving the Solomon Islands forward,” says Tengamoana.

“We also need to ensure the energy and talents of our young leaders are part of our direction and growth.”

Prince will be assisting SICCI Senior Executive Officer Nancy Kwalea with the SICCI/Business Excellence Awards Gala night next month.

As Miss Solomon Islands, she will also assist with coordination of SICCI’s response to the recent tsunami that hit the Temotu Province of Solomon Islands.

“The internship is an exciting opportunity for me to learn more about how the Chamber works, and how our company fits into the bigger picture of the Solomon Islands economy,” says Prince.

“Of course, the chance to help with the humanitarian response for Temotu is an important task. It’s my first day on the job, and already I’m feeling like time will fly!”

Prince completes her internship on March 31.
