JA My Big Idea Student Spotlight: Calvin

Posted in: Uncategorized

Calvin participated in the JA My Big Idea program in 2020 at age 11, and gained the tools he needed to launch what is now a successful small woodworking business. What was his secret? The belief he could do it!

“If I can start a business then anyone can,” Calvin remarked during his recent interview with JA. We virtually “sat down” with Calvin to hear his thoughts on participating in the JA My Big Idea program, designed to teach students about entrepreneurship and provide them with the tools they need to start their own businesses.

During the interview, Calvin shed light on how his small business, Calvin’s Woodworking, is currently going and what it’s been like to fill an order for 200 wood carvings of different American states! Check out his interview and hear what inspirational words he had for other students interested in becoming entrepreneurs!
