Meet Your Coordinator: Bryanna Brown – Association for New Canadians

Meet Your Coordinator is a series where we interview your Youth Ventures coordinators so that you can get to know them. We are back again for the 2018 Youth Ventures season, and today we have Bryanna Brown at Association for New Canadians.

What’s your name?

Hi, my name is Bryanna Brown. J

What Youth Ventures site are you based out of?

My site is with the Association for New Canadians at the AXIS Career Services in St. John’s, NL.

What are some of your favourite hobbies?

My favourite hobbies are working out, hanging out with my friends, and listening to music.

What’s your favourite movie?

My favourite movie is a sappy chick flick called The Longest Ride.

What is your favourite band?

My favourite band is DVSN.

What is your favourite restaurant?

My fav restaurant would probably be Nandos. I love all food though.

Do you have any pets?

I don’t have any pets of my own, but I really really want a dog someday in the near future.

What does entrepreneurship mean to you?

To me, entrepreneurship means taking your dreams and passions and working hard to turn them into a successful, fun career.

What is the coolest business you heard of?

A cool business I like is DISNEY. I think everyone loves it.

What are you looking forward to most this summer?

This summer I am looking forward to working with new comers to Canada to become new entrepreneurs with Youth Ventures and I am SO excited. I can’t wait.

What do youth in NL need to know about Youth Ventures?

We should know that Youth Ventures is an amazing and fun program. As a program coordinator, this summer I will do my best to make sure everyone has a great time while starting up their businesse(s).

What is the most important thing people of any age who want to start a business need to know?

I think what is really important to know when starting a business is you. If you know your strengths and weaknesses really well it makes asking for help, as well as, delegating certain tasks much easier and Youth Ventures is here to help you! Knowing your interests also helps when you are coming up with ideas for your new business as many business ideas are influenced by a person’s hobbies and interests.

How can people get in touch with you if they’d like to talk about starting a business?

If you would like to get in touch with me you can always give me a call at 709-579-1780 or send me an email at
