"At JA BizTown - One day you are a student, and the next day you're a professional businessperson! We learned important words such as "free enterprise" which means "The idea that people can invest money in a business in order to try to earn a profit." I personally enjoyed being the town's newspaper reporter for the day since one of my career goals includes journalism. I love to write and fortunately I'm not camera shy. Move on over Diane Sawyer, here I come!"
"Over the years, Junior Achievement has not only exposed me to the world of business, but has granted me the privilege of speaking at various events. Through these speaking engagements, I have gained confidence speaking in front of large crowds and have been introduced to some remarkable people. These opportunities have been a turning point in my life inspiring me to pursue a career in the music business industry. I have Junior Achievement to thank for giving me these experiences."
