Get to Know Us:

For Shirley, the best moment during her first year on her Enactus team has been being a presenter during the National Competition that led to their victory. She joined the team after being interested in one of the activities organized by a club she was involved in and from that, she knew Enactus was right for her. Shirley is an education arts major set to graduate in 2020. At her first Enactus World Cup, she is looking forward to new ideas, exposure, skills and fresh energy to be able to come back and address various challenges her country is facing.
