Young Belizean Wins Entrepreneurial Award

Youth entrepreneur Crystal Samos is the recipient of a pair of regional awards, following a recent trip to Grenada where she participated in a competition for young businesspersons.  Samos is recognized for astutely marketing the beauty product Carpe Diem, a chocolate scrub.  She won the 2015 Female Entrepreneur of the Caribbean and also received an award for Product Service for the Year 2015.  This morning, she stopped by our studio and spoke about her accomplishments.

 

Crystal Samos, Entrepreneurial Award Recipient

“Last week I was attending an entrepreneurial seminar in Grenada where all the Caribbean countries participated. We did a trade and expo there, a little completion, we were all graded and awards were given at different categories of the event. Belize came back with not only two awards for the night but the top two awards for the night. That was entrepreneur of the year 2015 and product service of the year 2015 as well. Representing Belize was Carpe Diem which is  a coffee scrub which has been trending in Belize for the past 7 months. Of course Carpe Diem is an excellent product it speaks for itself so I am glad that it was recognized regionally and that we came back with gold of course. I believe it means all positive things that we could excel not only in Belize and not only locally but we can be recognized regionally as well which is very important for us to export and have a larger market.

 

Carpe Diem is available at local supermarkets across the country.
