I generally get paid for speaking but make exceptions
When I was in high school, I participated in an incredible youth entrepreneurship program called the Diamond Challenge. By participating in this program, I was able to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and I also had the amazing opportunity to make friends from all over the world. I was able to learn about the many problems that were being solved in different parts of the world and meet the innovative people behind those solutions. Before the program, I didn’t know much about business and entrepreneurship, but I was enthralled by the challenging and exciting process of solving problems, creating value, and making a difference. I was so inspired by many young entrepreneurs I had met who were working on ventures that made a significant impact on the lives of other people - in their communities and in society. Their energy and passion was contagious and I quickly caught it!
