Over the next few weeks leading up to NFTE NY Metro’s Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Semi-Finals happening June 4th, we will be profiling every student participating in YEC. Stay Tuned. Today, we are profiling Vanessa A, CEO of Nessa’s Chic Braids.
My name is Vanessa, and I’m a freshman at Bronx Aerospace High School. My company, Nessa’s Chic Braids, is a hair braiding service that satisfies the needs of busy people. Nessa’s Chic Braids will provide clients who are too busy to go to hair salons with beautiful hair braiding in the comforts of their own homes. I’m qualified to run this business – I have been braiding hair for several years. I recently won second place in a competition for hair braiding and I have an apprenticeship at a hair salon. I am passionate about Nessa’s Chic Braids because I want both men and women to feel beautiful and confident.
