The Canadian Youth Business Foundation has selected 30 dynamic young Canadian entrepreneurs to form the official Canadian delegation at the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) in Nice, France on October 31-November 2, 2011.

Why I became an entrepreneur:
I love the organic process from conception to execution to actualization that I experience as an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is an exhausting yet gratifying profession.
My best moment as an entrepreneur, my success:
As an entrepreneur, my most rewarding moments have been actualizing the concept of the business, being featured in multiple media outlets, and participating in round table discussions with government ministers and others to share my opinions of how entrepreneurs can be further supported by the Canadian government.
My next challenge:
I have strategic plans in pace to grow my businesses simultaneously by building alliances and strategic partnerships. My businesses include my womenswear line Aime, its sister social e-commerce site M Project, and my mobile fashion app WhatImWear.In.
