Bachelor of Commerce student Rebecca Chapman brought her passion to life when she started the Chapman School of Irish Dance in the summer of 2010 as an entrepreneurial work term.
“It was an amazing opportunity to try operating my own dance school, which I hope to continue into the future. Operating my own business, even just for a summer, was exciting and rewarding as it truly was a product of my passion and efforts.”
Entrepreneurial work terms can prove to be a very rewarding and challenging adventure, and can be thrilling if your ideas become a success. “I learned a lot about managing a business and I am certain I want to continue teaching and inspiring students. If I could offer any advice to students it would be to go for it! I was nervous, but surprised at how much I was able to do when it came time to perform.”
