Illuminate x Durham

Hi everyone! My name is Akshana Indrakanthan and I am a Grade 10 student at Lester B Pearson. Today, I had the pleasure of attending a Speaker Time meeting for the Illuminate x Durham conference. Here are my thoughts highlighting what I learned about Alina Huang, her journey, and what she had to teach us. She really grew my understanding of the business industry and how to make it as an entrepreneur by providing us with tips, real-life scenarios, and by hosting hands-on activities. My favourite part of the session was her motivating thoughts. I feel she really changed the mindset of many who attended by telling us that confidence and having a positive mindset is key to success. Hearing this from someone as successful as Alina helped me push myself even more and made me realize that she was right, confidence is key, and I need to push myself more. Overall, the session was really inspiring, motivating, and informative.
