Hi, my name is Montse Pineda. I am excited to join the team at EPICentre as their Marketing Student Assistant this summer and have my first work experience in Canada! I am from Mexico City, and I arrived in Windsor in January 2022 to complete my undergraduate degree at the University of Windsor. I recently finished my first year of Film Production. These past few weeks at EPICentre, I have been able to get to know the EPIC team. My favorite thing about the EPIC team is that they are a group of people who love to support others and see the potential in their project ideas. I am so lucky to be surrounded by passionate people and to know and interact with the entrepreneurs they have been helping!
As part of the team, I have the opportunity to participate in events and workshops hosted by EPICentre, where I can practice my networking skills and get to know the Windsor community. As an international student, I am excited to see who I can connect with in the future!
As an artistic person, I hope to channel my creativity into projects at EPICentre and learn to combine it with marketing, which is something I am eager to learn more about. In the next few months, I will be working on a few projects, one featuring female founders and entrepreneurs from the VentureWomen program. I advocate for female rights; I enjoy getting to know the trajectory of powerful women to see how far they have had to overcome in the different industries. So, I am thankful that the EPIC team trusts me to successfully showcase their journeys!
