Ever since I was young, I have always striven to be an entrepreneur, whether through the proverbial lemonade stand as a child or using my constantly evolving programming competencies for freelance jobs. In seventh grade, I participated in the Duke TIP program, taking the entrepreneurship class which set me on a track to continue innovating and creating. Ever since that point, the thrill of running a business, with the necessity of mastering marketing, design, coding, interpersonal communication, and more, has never failed to marvel me. In the past few years, I have started and continued a few businesses and have expanded my reach into other engagements including advising and speaking.
