Biz Kid$ Faith Guerrero

I think that the Biz Kid$ competition teaches students real-world skills by taking a break from the standard textbook curriculum and showcases real-world scenarios. The competition very much so sparked my interest in business. I’ve always been an organized person, so the careful planning that comes with creating a business plan was like second nature to me. I’m glad that there is a career path available that suits my interests.
