Katherine Roan is a passionate Secondary Teacher at Roxburgh Park College. She also runs a food truck business 'Paper Plains' with her younger sister Ang.
After being frustrated at the lack of entrepreneurial skills that her students were being exposed to, she organised and ran a three-day 'Highschool Entrepreneur' program in Melbourne.
At the end of the three days' students presented their innovative solutions for improving entrepreneurial education in schools. The weekend attracted over a dozen mentors from industry and the winning team presented at the Foundation for Young Australians office in Melbourne. She recruited two mentors through Code the Future to assist over the 3 days.
She will be sharing her journey of getting this event to happen and what she learned along the way.
