As lockdown is still ongoing in many countries around the world, the School Enterprise Challenge team released our third optional activity for students to engage with school businesses from home during the pandemic: A Good Entrepreneur.
Students are invited to write a brief review of a character from their favourite film or book, as a way to think about the entrepreneurial qualities which helped them to overcome obstacles. This activity gave students the chance to reflect on which attitudes and skills are needed to succeed in entrepreneurship and helped develop their communication skills and aspiration.
We loved reading students’ accounts of inspiring characters and were amazed at how passionately they talked about them! Check out a few of the submissions we received below.
Anjali from the Ahlcon Public School in India paints a passionate portrait of Jo March, her favorite character in the book Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. “The charm of Little Women was never really about the relationships at all; Jo’s fight to remain fearlessly herself in a man’s world and to achieve her dream of a writer’s life against all obstacles— that was the real love story”. Read more about why she chose this protagonist as a model here.
