Yves Marie Desires

Yves Marie Desires

Handcrafts and traditional arts have always interested Yves Marie Desires. But before participating in Entrepreneur Works' Youth Entrepreneur Program, Desires had not realized that she could make money selling the crafts she had made for friends and family in her spare time.

Before starting her own business, Desires was working at the School District of Philadelphia as an assistant and going to school. She was extremely enthused to learn that she could start her own business. "It is so empowering. Entrepreneur Works' class was so empowering," Desires said.

One of the most important things Desires learned was how to value her time as an educator and an artist. In addition to selling her jewelry and artwork, Desires offers an Afro-Caribbean Cultural Arts Assembly in which she shares her love of dance, crafts, and culture with children and adults in her community.
