This is the second in a series of 6 posts that hopes to bring some promising local grads and current students to the attention of the larger business community.
MICHELA BYL: A fashion fast-forward kinda gal.
EDUCATION: 4th Year BComm at U Vic
ASPIRATION: “Marketing Director at Holt Renfrew has a nice ring to it.”
CURRENTLY: Co-op at Chamco in Calgary
Meet Michela Byl. She knows what she wants. Check out her blog and you’ll see her interests are well-formed and acted upon. She has her sights set on a career that mixes her passion for fashion and style with her training in business and entrepreneurship.
This Calgary girl – which is where she is currently doing her 4th year co-op term – describes herself as a business chameleon. She can handle whatever you throw at her and keep her head screwed on.
Here are my own observations: Michela brings it. She is respectful, engaged and interested, and has an outlook that makes her stand out straight away.
“She is such an optimistic person,” says Andrew Hall, a cohort at U Vic. “She knows where to keep the energy focused.”
Focus. Not every student coming out of a business school has that. Advantage to those, like Michela Byl, who do.
