Our proudest moment of the past year:
“Watching our students bask in the success of our farmers and people that are being helped by their efforts. Getting to see our students FaceTime with our farmers before and during the practices for our competition. These students, although wanting to win, are really in this for the right reason to change the lives of others for the better.”

Biggest challenge from the past year:
“Getting schedules to work and getting everyone on the same page with time, commitment, etc.”

Team described in one word:
Tight.

Get to Know Us:

A passion for social enterprise and helping those in need in her community led Princess to her university’s Enactus team. “I love our farmers and I am always inspired with their hard work as well as the other members on my team.” Two years later, Princess serves as the VP of Communications and Recruitment on her team. Today, one of her greatest successes with her team has been the change she has seen in herself through serving others. Princess is an exercise sports science and entrepreneurship major set to graduate in December 2018. At Enactus World Cup this year, Princess is looking forward to the opportunity to hear feedback on her team’s project and meet other Enactus students.

 

More about Princess:

  • What I’m reading: “The Compound Effect”
  • Theme song: “Long Live” by Taylor Swift
  • Who inspires me: Mother Teresa
  • Enactus in one word:  Advocate.
  • Best Enactus moment: “When we introduced each other on my team during the Nationals, instead of saying each other’s names we mentioned what we love about each other in front of the whole crowd.”
  • In five years, I will be… “traveling around the world empowering women in entrepreneurship.”
