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 word 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.
