St. John Fisher College is home to many talented students, one of them — Angelea Collins.
Collins is not only a full time business management major and president of the Entrepreneurship Club, she is also the CEO of Frosted — a cupcake business that provides homemade, all-natural cupcakes to the community.
Collins started her business in 2016 through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, a 30-week course that teaches young students real-world business skills. Why cupcakes you might ask? Growing up, Collins often baked with her grandmother and aunt and it became an important part of her life. “Once the opportunity to start a business came about, I knew that starting a business around baking was something that I wanted to do,” Collins said.
Dr. Carol Wittmeyer, Dean of the School of Business, has worked closely with Collins this year. “Angelea Collins has been a joy to watch blossom at Fisher. In her short time on campus, she has revitalized the Entrepreneurship Club, kept up with her classes, sports, service activities and her business,” Dr. Wittmeyer said. “She’s a great example of someone who has taken advantage of all Fisher has to offer.”
After college, Collins said she would like to expand her business by purchasing a cupcake truck. “I have always dreamed of owning a cupcake truck,” said Collins. “I would travel with it to different locations, whether it be track meets, events, or even coming back to campus. I think it would be so much fun and I would learn and experience so many things.”
For now, Collins will continue sharing her knowledge with other students through the Entrepreneurship Club. “I hope to inspire others and teach others what I learned in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, and I want to help others grow their passion for entrepreneurship because I think entrepreneurship has many opportunities and can be used in so many unique ways,” said Collins.
