Despite some real challenges that COVID-19 has brought all of us, it has also created some real unexpected opportunities. TEDx San Luis Obispo hosted their very first virtual event and I was asked to speak to my journey of unconventional path-finding this past summer. In the talk I explain how I built SUMMR 2020 and how YOU can do the same thing with 0$ and some real grit.
Why? Because to me, things that don’t conventionally work together are some of the most interesting and radical combinations. For the past three years, I have navigated college equipped with both a directional and disciplined plan, as well as an open-mind and a creative, free-spirit towards new and exciting experiences.
My appetency for long nights and caffeine ultimately led me to none other than the world of entrepreneurship. In the summer of 2019 I co-founded my first start up, Ethic. With a dream to “make it easier to buy good” my team and I were awarded $10,000 dollars and extensive mentorship to build out our company. During this time I got my mini MBA learning about all aspects of business and product development as well as cultivating myself as a leader and a creative thinker. Now I am creating my own summer internship, SUMMR 2020, after loosing a corporate experience from COVID-19. I using this time to connect with innovative leaders and learn how they challenge the conventional.
