While she is a busy student leader and in her second year of Environmental Engineering, this fall, Aileen did just that – and she’s very glad she did.
“Before we even arrived at GreenHouse, Tania asked us to list three to five things we each wanted to accomplish. Tania and Brendan have held me accountable and have strived to see those goals come to pass.”
Today her venture, BeBlended is a developing online platform that aims to provide modern and accessible hair care services for Black women, connecting them with hairstylists they couldn’t find on their own. Aileen has developed a landing page (www.beblended.ca) where people can sign up and know what’s coming. Her next step is to find a developer who can help her build this platform. She aims to have a beta version of the site operational by April 2019 and plans to come back to GreenHouse in the spring in an effort to help haircare for Black women be as simple as it is for everyone else.
