Our friends at FastStart – the youth entrepreneurship training partnership that brings together Trent University, Fleming College and The Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster – have profiled a passionate student with a bright future in this month’s #FacesofFastStart series.
Meet Tiffany Desbiens #FacesofFastStart!
FastStart is designed to increase entrepreneurial skills and awareness, help youth create solid businesses, and take their products and services to market.
Tiffany is a second year Business Administration- Marketing student at Fleming College who describes herself as a risk taker, applying to the farthest college away from home. She fell in love with Peterborough.
“Business was not something I saw myself doing for the rest of my life. I now know that marketing is something I can be passionate about. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by such supportive friends, teachers, employers and organizations like FastStart Peterborough and the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster.”
Tiffany is the President of the Fleming Marketing Committee, the Student Ambassador for Fleming College, the Student Ambassador and Team Leader for the Great Canadian Sales Competition, and Marketing Intern for the YWCA Peterborough.
“It is so important to supplement your education. FastStart has offered so many networking events like E-Connect, pitch competitions, and the Kawartha Backcountry Entrepreneurship Experience.
I along with many other business students within the community have definitely been whipped into shape and better prepared for the business world. It has been a great experience to be a part of the FastStart family. They have given me the opportunity to implement my in class studies into real world experiences. I strongly encourage you all to get involved on campus and in the community because you never know what opportunities are out there until you go looking for them,” says Tiffany.
