Emily Brydges, pictured here in her Suffield backyard, recently completed an online program in business leadership.

Emily Brydges, 14, recently completed the winter session of an after-school entrepreneurship academy called Girls With Impact. She plans now to go into business with the program she developed.

She participated in the 12-week program through 50-minute online classes at home, in audio and visual contact with local and global classmates and their coaches.  In a final online meeting, the students presented the business plans they had developed.  Emily’s virtual company was No Loose Ends, which would sell multi-colored shoe laces to runners, with all proceeds going to support Campaign for Female Education.

In a statement prepared for the program, Emily said, “Prior to joining Girls with Impact, I did not have the courage or resources to take my passion and make it into something real. Now, having completed Girls with Impact, I can use my knowledge and experience to make a difference.” She plans to bring her company into reality this summer.
