Helping youth chase their dreams

I am a 21-year-old entrepreneur and community leader studying business at the University of Alberta. I realized my passion for entrepreneurship when I set out to become a tutor at the age of 13. I was unable to find a company that would hire me because of my age so I decided to launch my own business, Toon Tutors, with a goal of providing meaningful employment opportunities for young people and affordable educational tools for families. My involvement with entrepreneurship continued when I joined Junior Achievement in high school and built three different companies. In an effort to help peers foster interest in entrepreneurship, I started the first business-focused club at my high school, OSA Entrepreneurs. The club connected students with mentors and resources to teach them about entrepreneurship. I recently represented Canada as the country's youngest delegate for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs' Alliance Summit, championing youth entrepreneurship across the world.

 

In 2020, I merged my passion for business with my love for public speaking and debate by launching TalkMaze, a virtual coaching platform that connects learners from all around the world with high quality training. My vision is for TalkMaze to be the go-to platform for anyone looking to build effective communication skills. Beyond business, I am passionate about advocating for important causes in my community. I serve as the Rural Partnerships Director of Outrun the Stigma Edmonton, a non-profit dedicated to reducing stigma around mental health. I also regularly volunteer with organizations such as Junior Achievement to empower youth in my community through financial literacy.
