Throughout the Meet Ye! series, we will be sharing some inspirational stories of young entrepreneurs from the Ye! Community around the world. This is the part 4 in a 5 part series.
Ye! is the global community of young entrepreneurs. Ye! is made up of thousands of youths around the world with a vision to provide meaningful employment for their peers and themselves. These young entrepreneurs have a vision and they have pursued it, regardless of the outcome.
Ye! is Wilson.
