Here is Sajan’s winning essay:
What is an Entrepreneur?
By Sajan Lama
An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and manages business undertaking risks and making financial decisions. It was an honor to meet an inspiring personality as Stuart A. Carpey while, he came to visit our basketball team, Rising Sons. Mr. Carpey is a very good example of an entrepreneur who has successfully taken the risk to open his own business. He gave us insights of being an entrepreneur and shared brilliant information with us. He also provided us with many suggestions and advices and answered all our questions.
In the future, I want to become a lawyer so, the information that Mr. Carpey shared with us was very interesting and informational to me. One of the things that really inspired and stick with me was how he worked very hard, put all his time, energy and effort on getting justice to an injured person when he isn’t even sure if he will get paid for his work. The job that he is doing right now is very risky, financially wise and that made me question if I wanted to take the same risk in the future. It made me question, “If I would want to take a risk of not getting paid a single penny without the job done successfully. Even worse until you actually win the case.”
However, looking up to Mr. Carpey who has been able to take that risk in life and has been very successful I am inspired to take the same path in the future. I am very thankful to Mr. Carpey for sharing his experiences and giving us advices. I hope he will continue to share his experiences and advices to children like us so; we can be motivated and encouraged about our future goals.
