According to us, our entrepreneurship curriculum shape a new mindset for us, we can see that entrepreneurship education will change the poverty in our society. Therefore, through this project we learned more about entrepreneurship principles and share to the Global School Net Community. From this project we learned: how to research about a leadership figure, we can explore the information from various resources (internet, books, interview, video, etc), compile it and develop a web. This is a new skill and new experience for us. During making this project we can work together as a teamwork. We are willing to help each others.
