From Here to There: Jessica McLellan, JA Alumni

I started (Company Program) in grade 10.  I had an interest in business and wanted to learn. I really didn’t know much and just picked up from here and there.

Most of my experience is when I was in grade 12. And I was the President of the company Doggo Delights.  I learned even more about how to be a leader in a small business and how to work together. I met new people and sometimes meeting new people and doing new things are scary. Having these skills are great for going into the real world.

Junior Achievement is a great place to learn about business when you’re in high school. You learn a lot of how to make a business, start it, how it functions.   

After high school I went right into school and studied more ways of being an entrepreneur and a leader in business.  I’m now part of Enactus, as the Financial Director of the team. Thanks to Junior Achievement I use a lot of my skills from it for Enactus.

I’m now also a volunteer with Junior Achievement, as an Advisor in Company Program in my second year. It is honestly one of my favourite volunteer jobs ever.
