Designing an entrepreneurial journey

Self-discovery has been a big part of Rose Soma's WMU journey. “Pursuing a minor in entrepreneurship was one of the best choices I made coming to Western. But more important than the classes we register for is the content each class provides and what each student chooses to do in the class," she says. "If I can give any advice to another student, it would be this: if you love your work, don’t let anything get in the way of it.”
