Chanice's Story

My passion is business.

As a student who excels in math, I became more interested in the financial side of business. I want to learn how companies operate and what types of deals they sign in order to increase revenue. In the future, I want to become a Chief Financial Officer. Looking at recent statistics, there is a small percentage of women that pursue this career. I want to succeed in the predominantly male field and be a role model to younger girls who are discouraged by these statistics.

A Note from Mr. Campbell, Chanice's Teacher

Chanice will benefit greatly from attending the Envision NYLF Business Innovation program. Chanice takes advantage of the many rigorous classes offered to her at UPC (including multiple AP courses), but we are not able to offer many electives due to our small size. As such, attending this program will help Chanice explore more options than are currently available to her. Being a part of a program like this will help her prepare for moving to college in a little over a year!

My Journey to the Business World

Once again, thank you for donating to my program. I'm excited to explore this potential career path. I chose to attend Envision NYLF Business Innovation because it will enable to be exposed to the business world early. As an inexperienced apprentice, I will be able to see how well I would do in my pretend company and receive advice from business professionals and the program itself so I can identify my strengths and weaknesses. I'm looking forward to this program because not only will I be able to make connections within the business field, but I will also be able to establish bonds with other high school students.
