YES! I have an orange Tabby cat named Goose (After the Captain Marvel character)  

Fun fact about you? 
I LOVE Musicals! This past fall I got to see Hamilton on Broadway!  

What does entrepreneurship mean to you? 
Entrepreneurship for me means getting to work on the things you are passionate about and making a living doing so. It’s important to teach youth that they can create their perfect job 

What is the coolest business you have heard of? 
The coolest business I’ve heard of is Pottery Cafe businesses where you can enjoy a coffee or treat while painting a ceramic.   

What are you looking forward to most this summer? 
I am most looking forward to visiting all the schools in my region to promote the program to as many youths as possible 

What are some interesting business opportunities you see for young entrepreneurs in your region? 
I would really love to meet an entrepreneur with an interest in thrifting and reselling cool clothing!  

What do youth in NL need to know about Youth Ventures? 
It is a wonderful FREE program that can really help your business become a success 

What is a piece of advice you have for people of any age who are considering starting a business? 
The best piece of advice I can give is to keep trying and to not give up when things get tough, many times participants will get discouraged if they do not have good sales at markets and will get down on themselves and their business, which can put a damper on sales.  

 How can people get in touch with you if they’d like to talk about starting a business? (Please include site address, work number and your YV email)
