For a lot of us, our teens were filled with spending time with friends, or wasting time in my case. However, there are some that are just a different breed. These are those inherent hustlers and entrepreneurs, who find a way to succeed no matter what. Here's another story that inspires you to get up off your seat and do something better. Take yourself to the next step. We discuss the journey of Joshua Marquez (@thebredexchange) who's a 17-year old Brampton native.
Before 20, Joshua has accomplished some impressive milestones:
He's got a University of Toronto National Scholarship, which may potentially be a full scholarship
He competed at the national level for the Toronto Basketball Academy
He's finished top 5% in the Columbia University Summer camp for Materials Science and Nanotechnology. I don't know about you, but people can't even spell Nanotechnology.
He started his own clothing line and sneaker reselling business (@thebredexchange)
