The Future Dragon Fund Contest will award 10 ambitious grade 11 and 12 students who show promise as future or current entrepreneurs with $5,000 each to fund the entrepreneurial pursuit of their choice. Grace Noël is the fourth student to be awarded since the Fund was announced in October.

Grace Noël is a multi-faceted design entrepreneur - she has her own card company, fabric design store and blog. She creates cards from various recycled items and sells them at craft fairs. In July 2012, she launched a website of fabric designs: www.spoonflower.com/profiles/graceful

One of Grace Noël's fabric designs will be featured in the North Carolina Museum of Art in April 2014, while another design has been used to design a collection of shoes by 'Milk and Honey'. Her blog – Creatively Graceful – promotes art, fashion, crafts, decor, design and literature...

Grace Noël is interested in business management as an avenue to pursue her creative endeavours. Her ultimate dream is to develop a fabric company and have her own boutique with a physical storefront.
