Illuminate x Markham

Hi everyone! My name is Jillian and I am a Grade 11 student at Markville SS. Today, I had the pleasure to attend Illuminate x Markham’s regional conference. Here are my thoughts highlighting what I learned about entrepreneurship.

This conference opened my eyes to the numerous possibilities the world has to offer, from job opportunities, to experiences. I learned about the Theory of Change and various mindsets that I will be able to apply to support my learning and assist me in reaching my goals in the future.

My key takeaway from this experience is that you don’t need to have a concrete, structured plan in order to be successful. Instead, experimenting and exploring the possibilities may be what truly brings you the most joy and success.

I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to listen to the keynote speakers today, participate in engaging case studies, and I can’t wait for the next conference. :)
