Student IMPACT


I found inspiration to develop my business from past generations’ mistakes and learned that I don’t want a “typical” or “normal” lifestyle. I want to work for myself every day and know that my success will continuously contribute to my happiness and overall well-being. My business is a clothing brand called SEVEN17 BOUTIQUE.


My mother has been a driving force in my decision to pursue entrepreneurship, as she consistently encouraged me to channel my creative talent into profitable ventures while simultaneously fostering a strong sense of self-reliance. Her unwavering support and guidance have been critical in shaping my path as an entrepreneur. I am immensely grateful for her mentorship, which has helped me to develop a business-minded mindset and a resilient approach to problem-solving.


One valuable lesson I have learned in promoting my business is the importance of confidence in one’s product. I have come to realize that if I am not convinced of the value and quality of what I offer, potential customers are unlikely to be convinced either. As a result, I have made it a priority to cultivate a deep-seated belief in the uniqueness and value of my offerings, and to take purposeful steps towards advancing my entrepreneurial journey every day.


My strategy for business growth involves a persistent effort to market and network by connecting with local entrepreneurs, giving special attention to my marketing tactics, and securing funds to expand my inventory.


The creation of my company lies in my desire to influence the younger generation through apparel that conveys powerful emotions. At the heart of our mission is a commitment to promoting the importance of prioritizing happiness and embracing life’s simple pleasures. Through our clothing, we strive to inspire individuals to seek joy and contentment in all aspects of their lives.


My personal growth strategy involves investing all of my time and energy into building the empire I have always envisioned for myself through my business. I am committed to taking the necessary steps to scale up and expand my business, which I believe will not only facilitate professional growth but also contribute significantly to my personal development.
