YARMOUTH - Yarmouth born entrepreneur Mandy Rennehan is teaming up with Barbie for the “You Can Be Anything Mentorship Program.”
The program is designed to give Canadian girls with big hopes a hands-on career experience with women who have followed their passions all the way to success.
Parents in Nova Scotia have the chance to enter their girls in a one-day hands-on building experience with Rennehan, founder of Freshco, and a reknowned construction magnate.
For her, the concept is not just about young girls.
“It’s girls in general. I’m a big advocate of you can be everything,” she said.
“You can have everything – you can be a mom, you can work in the trades, you can make money, you can do it all with the right support.”
One lucky girl will learn what it takes to be her own boss and work in the dynamic trade industry.
The winner will be hitting Rennehan’s custom woodwork studio on Nov. 9 to learn about master carpentry, the latest in high-tech machinery, designing and building.
A pop-up party will be held at the Yarmouth Mall as a special community event on the same day to celebrate the girls of Yarmouth and inspire them all “to be whatever they want to be.”
“I’m excited. Having this held in Yarmouth is important to me, for all the young girls in South West Nova. This young girl is going to be seen all over Canada and the United States. We’ve got some really great prizes for her when she works at RennDuPrat for the day,” said Rennehan.
Applications for the contest are now being processed online. Submissions close Nov. 6.
