Ginseng tea provides people with positive effects to their overall heath. For example, it helps boost energy and relieve stress, and is a healthy drink for all ages. Dan has been drinking ginseng tea for many years and wants to share this drink with people who are caffeine addicted, people who do not like energy drinks but need to stay awake, people who need energy and never feel like they have enough, and people who just want a simple and refreshing drink. Currently, she offers three flavors—plain ginseng tea, ginseng red date tea, and ginseng goji drink.

This gave me the opportunity to integrate myself into the international world since my earliest age. I directly understood the different behaviors of the different nationalities that gave me this unique understanding of cultural needs, issues and advantages.

Furthermore, the institution is a private one where all the wealthiest family members in the world are going. I have been meeting people from everywhere in the world from the highest social class to the normal one. I met people from royalties and student from the biggest entrepreneurs in the world. This gave me the opportunity of increasing my personal social network by far. During my studies I have created a partnership event service company based in London where we bring the entire wealthy students into the most magnificent venues of central London.

New York City is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, and as a result, one can find any and all type of cultural cuisine, clothing, stores, and events. Often referred to as a “melting pot”, it’s not surprising that in New York City, these different ethnicities and cultures are beginning to fuse. While this concept of fusion is not new to the culinary world, it is entirely new to the entertainment world and Reaction Dance Company NYC intends to fill that gap. We will bring ethnically diverse entertainment into the American marketplace by offering customized dance performances in the combined styles of Latin, Bollywood, Hip-hop, and Contemporary for weddings, parties, corporate events, and private instruction. Already, Omicon Entertainment has booked Reaction for their Halloween party at Amazura Concert Hall with an additional offer to work their future events. Reaction intends to reach future clientele through a promotional plan involving the creation of dance videos to gain attention on social media outlets, and proactive networking in the entertainment and event-planning world. In order to reach the next level and fully launch the business, Reaction requires start-up funds that they hope to acquire from the Ted Levine Grant. The $7,500 grant will cover the initial costs of starting up the business, including LLC formation, paying for rehearsal space, professional filming and editing of dance videos, photoshoots for website and advertising materials, the creation and execution of a multi-channel marketing plan, and the maintenance of our website and social media. This investment would be in the capable hands of Juliette Nieves (Founder/CEO, Artistic Director), and Julia Sokolyansky (CMO, Co-Artistic Director), whose dance experience totals 33 years combined, and who each individually have extensive experience in business through employment as well as undergraduate coursework. Together, they have the connections to hire some of the best dancers in New York City, the skills to create professional and highly-artistic dance entertainment individually catered to our clientele, and the business savvy and the network to successfully land jobs and run the business seamlessly.
Juliette Nieves learned Latin dance informally in her living room and formally at Linda D’Amico’s Academy of Dance, where she also studied ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop. In her senior year of high school, she was accepted into Broadway Dance Center’s Summer Internship program and into Pace’s Commercial Dance program on merit scholarship. Since then, she has danced for Wells Fargo, Bollywood Funk NYC, Hoop Girlz, RISE, and Mint Dance Company. She has choreographed for Physha P, Broadway Dance Center, and concept videos. In her sophomore year of college, she decided to minor in Arts and Entertainment Management which opened her mind to the idea of owning her own business. This year she received the Pforzheimer Research Honors Grant for Fusion Dance and started her first year of teaching at Shooting Stars NYC.

Paige Cecchi is currently a junior, B.S. Business Economics student at Pace University. Throughout her college experience, Paige has taken on leadership positions within the Economics Society on campus and expanded her network to include prominent alumni and likeminded motivated students. She has fostered an entrepreneurial spirit from a young age with the goal of starting her own business. Paige is now focused on growing her company, SheerStock, a monthly subscription hosiery service. After many unpleasant experiences shopping for hosiery products in drug stores, Paige thought of a way to make buying hosiery online easy, convenient, and reliable, as these products are regularly disposable. Along the way, Paige realized organizations that provide professional clothing to underprivileged women were lacking new hosiery products to supply to their members.
