“Thanks to entrepreneurship, I do not have to choose which of my dreams to pursue”

Jessica Huhtinen, an alumnae of the Junior Achievement association, is working towards one day having a fitness and gymnastics clothing brand under her own name. Entrepreneurship began to revolve in her mind and in vocational school it was possible to carry out the Company programme developed by the Junior Achievement association. “I already knew how to sew, so I wanted to focus on the business side of my studies. Eventually, the teacher entered me in the Junior Achievement association’s Uskalla Yrittää competition and I won the OP Group award.” Jessica shares a tip to others dreaming of entrepreneurship: Listen to the customer. A satisfied customer will recommend you. Good players will be remembered.
