YOUNG APPRENTICE: Amy Corrigan Is Third Candidate To Be Fired - In Her Own Words

Posted: Updated:

Lord Sugar said goodbye to his third candidate for this year's Young Apprentice. Amy Corrigan explains what happens, in her own words...

We had to source random objects from around London. There were so many products that we had never even heard of, so that proved extremely difficult! I was proud to say that on my sub-team, I found both mine and David's products. We all had to secure one each. Perhaps if I had been more selfish and kept the two, it would've been a different story for David.

What were your highlights of the experience?

Coming up with #wheresmummy, and selling the most clothes on the first task!

What was your worst moment on the show?

The third task was such a let down, from the beginning right through to the end. And of course that resulted in my firing!

How do you think this experience will help you in the future?

I think 'Young Apprentice' is such an epic thing. I'm so proud to say I've done it! I think it's taught me that I'm a lot better than I used to give myself credit for. Hopefully it will help me move further forward, and take more risks that I would have done before.

What are your hopes for your future career?

I would love to go into advertising, as I'm incredibly creative. However, one day I still dream of owning my own nightclub!

What would you to say to any fellow young aspiring business people? Any advice?

Go out and do whatever it is you want. Take risks, learn from them and do whatever you can to succeed. Let nothing or no one hold you back, ever!

What have you learnt about business from your experience on YA?

I've learnt that business is what you make of it. Whatever it is that you want, if you have the initiative, you can make it happen!
