Mount St. Mary's University students had the opportunity to demonstrate their entrepreneurial prowess earlier this month when the Visionaries of Inclusive Cultural Experiences (the V.O.I.C.E.) student organization hosted a lifestyle expo.

The expo offered student entrepreneurs the chance to share their businesses and find new clients on campus. One of the V.O.I.C.E.'s founders, Lyndsey Sauders, C’20, was among the vendors. The V.O.I.C.E. aims to unify the voices of students across campus and advocates for inclusivity.

Each vendor had a booth to represent their business, ranging from homemade body scrubs to eyelash extensions to custom-designed shoes. The budding entrepreneurs were pleased with the turnout for the event. "I was shocked by the overwhelming love and support shown for all us young entrepreneurs and our businesses," said D’Andre Allen C’23,
