Hello everyone! I am a first time participant in the Push for Entrepreneurship. I heard about the PFE campaign from my brother and his colleagues. I would love to help support them and make a difference, especially for all the young entrepreneurs in our communities creating opportunities that move society forward through creativity, drive, and innovation. In regards to fitness, I always love being physically active and keeping healthy. I usually do tons of cardio and yoga exercises. These activities empower me with healthy habits to surmount any imposed self-limitations and push for excellence. I am so thrilled to be apart of such a great cause and supporting the next generation of leaders/entrepreneurs through this event. WORKOUT TIPS: set goals, commit 100% to your goals with a winning mindset, and strive for greatness to achieve your goals.

The Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a 36-year-old, 501c3 nonprofit organization, is the nation’s largest continuously operating program for K-12 student inventors and entrepreneurs.
100% of the proceeds raised by Push For Entrepreneurship are donated to CIC.
CIC’s mission is to teach students creative problem-solving techniques through inventing, innovating, and entrepreneurship, by teachers trained in CIC’s programs. CIC programs have been endorsed by CT’s educational leaders as promoting creativity and critical thinking, and have received prestigious recognition, including trips to the White House Science Fairs.
In Connecticut, more than 16,000 K-12 students in 250 schools annually have CIC classroom-based programs.
Students compete in their schools and winners present their inventions at local and district events and at the state wide convention in May.
Selected state winners advance to the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan, in June.
CIC inventors comprises 50% girls and 26% minority students, with program growth focused in under-served school districts.
CIC inventors pursue entrepreneurship through patenting, investment, and commercialization.
Your donation will be used to provide hundreds of Bridgeport, Norwalk, and New Haven K-12 students the opportunity to participate in a program that will change their lives and our futures.
