What’s the business that you came up with during the IDEA centre and where is it now? I started selling my watercolour paintings to people in the community, while getting help with learning about my customer, how to make business connections, and how to run a business. I am still working on my business.

What are you doing and working on nowadays? Right now I am setting up my website so that I can reach a broader spectrum of customers as well as beginning a large project with another student.

If a high school student contacted you now, in what ways do you think you could help them? I could get them in with all my contacts, I have a very varied skillset from basic c# coding, to jewelry making, to sewing, and a lot more; I can also offer outside perspectives as I am almost never on the same page as anyone else.

What advice do you have for young entrepreneurs that are just starting out? I would advise them to never be afraid to get help. If you don’t know where to go ask somebody. If you are stuck ask someone how to get moving.

Favourite quote? "It's trashCAN not trashCANNOT" meaning even if you think you’re garbage at it, you can still do it.
