What did you learn from being in the YEA Class of 2019? 

I learned a lot about how to market my business, as well as how to calculate financials. We were taught how to create a successful business from the ground up.

What was your favorite memory from YEA this year? 

My favorite memory was overcoming the fear I had towards the investor panel. I overcame my fear of public speaking!
