Get to Know Us:

The passion for the values of Enactus regional coordinators inspired Joice to join the Enactus club at her university. Three years later, she has become its Project Leader. “I was afraid to express myself, says Joice,” who anticipates graduating this year with a degree in irrigation and drainage technology. “Enactus afforded me [the opportunity]to lose all of my fears and enabled me to always try, and that’s what I’ve been doing.” Joice says she hopes to acquire knowledge of new cultures and experience the culture of each participating team at Enactus World Cup, where all participants are striving for the same goal: progress in communities.

More about Joice:

  • What I’m reading: “The Shack,” by Wm. Paul Young
  • Theme song: “Castle on the Hill,” by Ed Sheeran
  • Who inspires me: Her family
  • Best Enactus moment: “Our team being the National Champion of Brazil.”
  • In five years, I will be…”cropping the fruits [for which] I’ve planted the seeds.”

He became involved with Enactus after encountering regional coordinators of Enactus Brazil who were promoting the program on campus. Today, one of his greatest successes with the team has been overcoming his greatest initial challenge. “I think I understood that I needed to get out of the comfort zone,” says Kevin, a chemistry major who plans to graduate in 2021. Enactus has shown me that I can go further, break down barriers and spread good deeds for our communities.”

More about Kevin:
