Housey set a goal for herself to cover her out-of-state tuition costs through her business profits. By applying to the Unions Entrepreneurial Program she was able to showcase and market her products in a physical space for the first time.
“I honestly never thought I would be able to get this far,” Housey said. “I never thought I was going to open a store at 20. This is my first store and hopefully not my last.”
