Getting into the holiday spirit last night at the Nepean night market Christmas craft show, where I met impressive young entrepreneurs Jamie and Andrée from Franco-ouest High school. They sell environmentally safe shampoo bars as part of their school Focus program. Their business floraa.ca is an Ottawa based youth led social enterprise which donates 15% of their profits to Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa / Bureau des services à la jeunesse. I am inspired by their passion and initiative! #LeadersOfToday
There was also festive music and local vendors, artisans and innovative young entrepreneurs like Sarah and Champagne from OrangeTheory fitness on Merivale. I bought a new face mask with Canada flags on it and a shampoo bar made by student entrepreneurs and even met a man who makes home-made guitars! What a fantastic way to get to know our neighbors!
