One Hen Young Entrepreneurs

Katie, 13
Brookline Steps to Success (STS)
One Hen Program, Summer 2016

My name is Katie, I am from Boston. The One Hen Camp is really great because we are learning about two things I really like which are business and giving back to other people. I feel honored to be able to give because I get a chance to help people. The way it works is we choose a cause to support and a product to make and we sold the product and used the profit to donate it to a charity. The best part was the donating. I like to give back and I like to see people's faces when I give back.

I have a lot of things that I want to do like becoming an actress, a singer, a dancer, a model, a teacher, an artist and also be a poetry writer on the side. One Hen taught me to use my own strengths and abilities and believe that I can do anything. I also learned that I can make my own business and use that money to help others.

I would tell a lot of people to take this program because you're learning how to make a difference in the world. I know from experience I wanted to make a difference but I didn't really think I had a voice and I didn't really know what to do. One Hen helped me know what to do. I have decided that I am going to buy my school supplies and buy extra so I can donate those to schools and shelters. I think I'm going to do it all my life as well... keep the business thing going and donate. It was really cool.
