JA inspired my career, my life
My Story: From disengaged high school student to motivated college student and successful entrepreneur
By Adrian Salamunovic, Co-founder, CanvasPop, as told to Meg Friedman
I joined JA in Grade 11 at Colonel By High School. A representative from JA had come to the school to talk about the after-school program, and I thought it sounded cool.
I was a C-level or D-level student at the time. I was disengaged and kind of bored with school. I guess I was a bit of a rebel – not a bad kid, really – but I just didn’t care. The classes didn’t interest me. I didn’t see how they were relevant to my life.
