Selene Rivera of Hoy Los Angeles gave an inside scoop on the California-based VE dessert firm, Scoopalicious. Rivera highlights the real-world business skills VE students are learning in the classroom, and how there is a role for every student and every skill set in a virtual company.
Rivera interviewed a VE alumna, Alma Pedroza, who was able to start her own car insurance company in Los Angeles thanks to the business expertise she gained in high school. Pedroza shared how her VE experience built the foundation for starting her own business:
“’La clase ha sido una experiencia gratificante porque a mis 17 años de edad es interesante poder pensar la idea de tener mi propio negocio.’”
“‘The class was a rewarding experience because at 17 it was interesting to be able to think about the idea of having my own business.‘”
Rivera also interviewed a current VE student, Alexander Ramírez, who spoke about what he has been learning in VE:
“'[Virtual Enterprises] nos prepara en todo: Habilidades sociales, habilidades en computación, matemáticas, trabajo en equipo…nos hace más creativos y nos abre una ventana de oportunidades nunca antes contempladas.’”
“‘[Virtual Enterprises] prepares us for everything: social skills, computer skills, mathematics, teamwork… it makes us more creative and it opens a window of opportunity that we could have never imagined.'”
