Mount St. Mary Academy’s Virtual Enterprises team took the world by storm this week at the Youth Business Summit in New York City. The team, which created and manages a virtual business called Enviroscentals, received a gold award at the International Trade Show under the sales leadership of senior Britini D’Angelo.
Caitlin Leong and her team placed second in the Global Business Challenge. Leong and Rachel Joachimi were Mount St. Mary Academy’s representatives in the challenge, in which they were each placed at random on a team with nine other students from throughout the world.
During their stay in New York, the team had the opportunity to meet with Michelle Cumbo ’84, a senior producer at MSNBC. The students toured the studios of the Meredith Viera Show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and SNL.
