Our proudest moment of the past year:
“One of the proudest moments of the year for our team was the first meeting we held this year. Close to one hundred people came and wanted to get involved in Enactus. It was inspiring to see such a huge number of passionate students that want to help people and tackle the issues facing the world today.”
Biggest challenge from the past year:
“This year, many of our projects left the Enactus network so we were starting from scratch once again with new projects in the startup phase. We were going into National Competition against Universities with long-standing projects that were having great impacts on society. Along with this, a huge amount of the Enactus DCU team graduated this year and we had many new faces that had never heard of Enactus before coming to University. The biggest problem we faced was getting over all the inevitable bumps in the road that come with starting new projects, with new teams, so that we could begin to have a meaningful impact on the people that we have worked alongside this year.”
Team described in one word:
Chloe found her place on her team two years ago when she attended an Enactus DCU event that introduced the current projects the team was working on. “It was where I first heard about HeadstARTS. I was incredibly impressed and inspired by the story of this project,” says Chloe, a Business Studies major set to graduate this November. “I knew immediately it was something I had to get involved in.” Chloe’s greatest successes with her team has been working on Threads—an environmentally focused social enterprise that empowers people seeking asylum in Ireland by teaching them skills to upcycle old and unwanted denim. Chloe hopes to learn about other projects and see what drives other student’s passion for helping others at Enactus World Cup this year.

When a friend introduced Sean to Enactus he says he was impressed by the projects the team had created and knew instantly he wanted to get involved. After just one year, Sean is the Advisory Board Liaison Officer for his team. “Every day something new always comes to the table like a potential partnership or event that you could get a project involved with,” says Sean, a Marketing, Innovation and Technology major set to graduate in 2021. “Working with Enactus requires me to be as creative as possible to always achieve the next goal for our projects.” At Enactus World Cup this year, he is looking forward to being exposed to different ideas, perspectives and stories from students from all around the world.
