Get to Know Us:

As an eager first year student on campus, Petronella learned about a series of entrepreneurship and business plan writing workshops taking place and quickly signed up. When she realized the workshops were being conducted not by faculty members but by peers on the Enactus team, she got involved and hasn’t looked back. Four years later, she serves as the team’s Secretary General and plays an important coordinator role for their projects, ensuring items like food and transportation are in place. Thinking of the upcoming Enactus World Cup, she hopes to leave Toronto with a mentor, as well as lasting friendships and business contacts.

More about Petronella:

  • Book she’s currently reading: Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama
  • Her personal theme song: It’s Not Over Yet by For King and Country
  • One person who inspires her: J.K. Rowling
  • Enactus in one word: Empowers
  • Single best Enactus moment: When the communities we work with welcome us so warmly
  • In five years, she will be…a successful owner of a business consultancy company specializing in grooming young entrepreneurs to reach their fullest potential.
