Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
By profession before the project i was a photographer. In 2010 i began a project called the haiti relief project which ran until the goals were changed. With this entrepreneurial initiative, i began an arts based business which in collaboration with other artists based in new york, we sold our work in a local gallery and raised funds to rebuild an orphanage in Haiti. Through this, i gained a number of skills from accounting, to marketing and relationship management. We raised thousands with this initiative and were able to rebuild an Orphanage in Haiti. I also acquired public speaking skills that are crucial with expanding the project. Since then we have been invited TEDxTeen 2011 in NYC, to speak at The Feast. These skills along with many other intuitive skills that i have gained have helped with the success of the project.
