Manage Your Money Co-Lead
Business Administration – Accounting Student
In my first year of college I found a love for education, giving and receiving and Enactus gave me the opportunity to do both. Before I applied to college I had been in the workforce managing a franchised fast food restaurant for five years. This time away from school taught me the importance of school and how one person can empower others to be better. Enactus gives students the opportunity to learn new skills and practice the skills they have learned in a safe environment while giving back to the community.
Financial Literacy, in particular for me, is incredibly important and being part of an organization that strives to teach the community life skills that permanently better society is amazing. I wish I had been a part of our programs when I was younger, they could have changed my life. Enactus gave me the opportunity to change others lives, while working with incredible people all aiming for the same goal, from the Enactus St. Lawrence College team, to the thousands of other students across Canada in other teams. I joined Enactus with the intention of giving to my community and empowering others. I stayed with Enactus because I found myself empowered by my community.
