Job Ambassador, The Prince’s Trust and Founder of Headcollarz

“I attended Aquinas Grammar School in Belfast where I was able to experience what it was like to start up and run a business through the Young Enterprise Company Programme. The programme gave me insight into company structures, how to manage finances and how to sell a product. I didn’t realise at the time the impact the programme would have on my personal development and self employment skills. Years down the line, it was those first experiences of starting up a business that inspired me to go down the role of launching my own business. I would never have thought that enterprise would have been for me, but I was able to put the base knowledge and skills that I had developed to good use.”
